Happy New Year’s Eve Eve!
Got your resolutions for 2017 sorted? Or are you avoiding them, as I did for years? I hated the idea of being pinned down, committed to achieve something that seemed a good idea on January 1st… Anyway, I reasoned, if something was a good idea, it was a good idea all year round… so why make a fuss about it once a year!?
But deep down, I did like the idea of getting to the end of a year with a sense of specific achievements, and having some sort of motivator to do those things that stayed on my ‘good intentions’ list most of the year…
A broader goal list became my solution; statements of intent that covered multiple areas of life. This way I could avoid being pinned down to one goal (and the accompanying dread of failure), and yet still encourage some self motivitation for change! Simple re-framing, but effective 🙂
By some miracle all of my promises to myself got checked off this last year!
*A new skill I’m going to learn: Reading crochet patterns (I’m not brilliant – but I can just about begin to decode them now!)
*A new food I will try: To cook sushi (Great fun with my daughter – she went for a ‘deconstructed’ approach, removing the seaweed wrapper to eat!)
*I am going to do better at: Investing in current friendships (One for many of us TCKs 😉 New friendships, no problem. Investing over time, a skill to learn!)
To help you positively declare your promises to yourself for 2017, I’ve included a link below to a PDF for your downloading pleasure 🙂
I do hope it is useful to you in helping you create a vision for changes and growth you want to see in your 2017!
