This is the first year in the history of forever that I have started the year off thinking about plans, goals, and resolutions and not feeling defeated before I start.
The other day I fell down a rabbit hole of great quotes on Pinterest (sorry in advance if you follow me on Pinterest and saw that hurricane of visual inspiration in your feed) and it prompted a review of sorts and a determination to find my path and get on it.
One thing I always disliked about resolutions is that they felt like hollow gestures. Like an untrue compliment that is said simply because you are filling an awkward silence. Or like the second the words left my mouth, they would dissolve like my warm breath on a cold morning, and as soon as I walked by the first cupcake (then the second… you see where this is going), it was all over. I stayed on the path I was walking on and, surprisingly, not getting different results.
My problem was, that I had considered making resolutions from a place of hate. I hated my body, I’ll exercise and eat right. I hated my emotions, I’ll eat less sugar and get more sleep. I hated that we couldn’t afford a family vacation this winter, I’ll spend less and work harder.
So this year, I am making a conscious effort to create goals and resolutions from a place of love.
I love myself, so I will make healthier choices. I love my family, so I will create a plan for a better work-life balance, and so on.
Now when I think about resolutions for 2015, my ideas and desires feel more weighted. I want to make healthy choices in all parts of my personal and business life and I want to do it because I love.
So there’s eating healthy, getting more active and being the instigator of physical activity in my family, and creating business goals for my company so I can focus my efforts instead of create distractions.
If your resolution is to lead a healthier life, then consider the Gummyvites line with a wide range of supplements for kids to adults. “As a leader in the field of taste and nutritional technology, they cover the full spectrum of dietary supplements for adults and children with the vitafusion™ and L’il Critters™ family of gummy vitamin brands.”
Thank you for reading and making my year wonderful. I’m looking forward to a wonderful 2015 with you.
