“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” – Richard Williams
I no longer believe in making new year resolutions.
It’s honestly overrated.
Why wait until the end of the year or January to start creating goals for yourself?
People be like: I’m going to start working out, I’m going to go vegan, I’m going to start doing all these great extraordinary things in January, and then by the time summer comes around, you’re unmotivated and stuck looking crazy because all your goals fell through trying to keep up with the joneses. It’s me, I’m people. I’ve been there and done that.
We all know things don’t always go exactly to the plan. And sometimes, that can be a good thing because something even better than you could have ever imagined can blossom. You have to give up some control and just let things flow.
When you’re at a point where you don’t know what to do, when there’s too many decisions to make, it’s best to just do nothing at all. The answers will come to you exactly when they need to.
So as I’m sitting here thinking about what my end of the year goals are…
All I can think about is simply just making it into the new year (& beyond) in good health. I’m looking forward to finishing my Christmas shopping, spending the holidays with my family, and finishing blogmas. That’s it, that’s all.
But don’t get me mistaken, I do have bigger goals for myself (long term and short term goals) that I plan to accomplish over time, but life is not a race. It’s never too late and I actually DO have time. I’m in competition with absolutely no-one.
I’ve learned that I get way more accomplished when I don’t share my plans or goals. Because the moment I do, it ends up never happening or something goes wrong. I would much rather take my losses in private.
I’ll show you better than I can tell you anyway.
I want to let go of the constant “grind mode” mentality, it’s ugly. I don’t want to keep normalizing overworking and burning myself out. I don’t mind sharing that the goal is to work smarter NOT harder.
I desire luxury, rest, love, safe spaces, joy, travel to new places, and overall feeling sexy and damn good about myself. I want to make my life as easy, fun and fulfilling as possible. And that’s more than enough.
Till next time,
