A Positive Approach to Resolutions

Seriously? Is tomorrow (today for some of you) really the first day of 2014? I still feel like Christmas should be next week.

Do you create resolutions for the new year?  I know many who do, and they often look like this:
-I will lose 10 pounds.
-I won’t spend as much money.
-I’ll meet THE one.
-I’ll take a vacation.
-I’ll only eat healthy foods and work out every day.


I like the idea of a “new start,” but often this push towards a new beginning and opportunity to change and improve leads to negativity, especially when those resolutions are forgotten three weeks later. Instead of thinking about what you don’t like in yourself, why not focus on how fabulous each of us is? There’s always room for improvement, but we could choose to embrace the goodness. We could appreciate our abilities, experiences, talents, and things that make us special. Anticipating the future with a bright outlook, not one shadowed with beating ourselves up about our perceived failures, sounds more enjoyable and doable.

In that vein, I found this printable to share with you. Click here for the original post from A Mom with a Lesson Plan.
