To be quite honest, I can’t stand New Year’s Resolutions. I do them every year, but I guess that is really just me giving into the societal pressures of having to resolve to do something new, fun, exciting, groundbreaking, (insert adjective of your choice here) in the new year. While January 1st is always an opportune and symbolic time to make a ‘fresh start,’ there is really always time to make a fresh start, whether it’s January 1st or June 13th. We can resolve to be better, healthier, more active, more social, more organized whenever we want – all it takes is the intention.
But, in the spirit of New Year’s Eve, I have set some goals for myself in 2014. Some of them are horse-related, while others are me-related. Check them out below:
11. Keep it simple. Have you ever desperately wished you could make change happen overnight? If so, you’re not alone: we’ve all been there. But we must surrender to the fact that real change happens by adding up subtle shifts. Each subtle shift creates a new experience of positive change. When we add up these moments, we create new behavior. It’s important to keep it simple and stay in the day. Let yourself off the hook! Instead of getting overwhelming by focusing on changing your whole life right now, simply begin paying attention to the moment-to-moment subtle shifts. Trust that the miracle lies within the subtleties.
So those are my 10 things I would like to accomplish in 2014. I think they are do-able, and I also think that is the most important thing to remember when doing whatever it is you do for New Year’s, make them do-able. Setting lofty goals for the new year can be more overwhelming than life-changing. We don’t want to start the new year over-whelmed. It’s supposed to be a fresh start, remember? So brainstorm on what you’d like to accomplish in 2014. It could be one thing or twenty things.
What are your 2014 hopes, dreams, and goals?
