Make 2017 Your Best Year!

Your success and happiness lies in you.  Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. — Helen Keller

Make 2017 Your Best Year

Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year?  Looking forward to what 2017 has in store for you, the changes, the learning, the friendships, the successes?  What are you looking forward to most?

Let’s Get This Year Started…

Think Big!  You know the saying “if you can think it, you can do it”.  The bigger the idea, the bigger the outcome.  Go for it, 2017 is the year to make your ideas happen.

Don’t Follow The Crowd.  If you like something or someone others don’t, that’s a them problem.  You do you (with a huge smile on your face).  Always be a student, not a follower.  It’s a huge difference.

Encourage Others.  We all like to hear a little encouragement.  Be that person for the others in your life.

Walk For 30 Minutes A Day.  Not only is getting out and walking 30 minutes a day good for your body it’s also great for your brain.  It’s a wonderful way to decompress from a long day at work, let the work stuff go and enjoy a relaxing evening.  If motivation is a problem try getting a FitBit (the wrist one) or FitBit (the clip-on one).  See my experience with a FitBit here.

Let Go.  I know from personal experience this one is sometimes easier said then done.  If there are people in your life that shouldn’t be there.  Let them loose.

Be On Time.  When you are late you are letting the person waiting on you know their time is not important to you.  It is a lack of respect to keep others waiting.

Forgive.  Another hard one.  Just remember while you are holding on to animosity, they are out enjoying life!

I am choosing to make this a year of positivity, large goals and letting go!

Until Next Time…

    I love this post! I don’t do resolutions but I do come up with a word or phrase for the year and I make goals and create a plan to achieve them. I fell a bit short last year so I need to do some catch up in 2017.
    Happy New Year to you!
