Okay, be honest. How many of you are resolving to go to the gym more often in 2019? Mine is the same every year and by January 3, I have forgotten all about it. Well, I have forgotten about the gym, not the resolution. I usually go through a period of being angry with myself for not following through. So, I have decided to come up with a different resolution this year.
This year, my resolution, to be kind to myself and nurture my needs. I spend a lot of time taking care of others and empowering others. I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world. But often, I leave little or no time to really focus on me. That changes this year. I need to make sure my crown is on straight to be able to continue to straighten the crowns of others.
I don’t choose this resolution because I think it will be easy. I think this may be one of the hardest things I have ever done. I hate taking care of myself. It feels selfish, putting my needs before others. I don’t like doing that. But this year, it’s time I do. That doesn’t mean I will stop caring for others. Just that I will take a little extra time so I can adjust my crown and be stronger to help you adjust yours better.
Yep, it still means going to the gym when I can. But if I miss a day or two…well,I haven’t failed. But it also means keeping up with doctor appointments, going out with friends, taking my vacation time, and just unapologetically being me. I am Loki g forward to the challenge. I have come so far in my journey, but this, well, I think taking care of others has always been a good distraction. So now it’s time to focus on me and enjoy the ride.
What’s Your New Years Resolution. Please share.
