Writing Prompt: We’re entering the final days of 2014 — how did you do on your New Year’s resolutions these past 11.75 months? Is there any leftover item to be carried over to 2015?
Every single year I say that I’m never gonna make New Years Resolutions, and every year I quietly make them, some I stick to and some I don’t, some resolution that I made and stuck with (and will continue on the the new year are:
- Continue to lose weight: I’m not trying to be skinny I just want to be healthy… well as healthy as possible considering my myriad of health issues. I believe and continue to stand strong behind the idea that as long as I’m as fit as I can possibly be, it makes dealing with my health issues a lot easier. I’m not where I want to be, and I may not be there this time next year, but I continue to make positive changes that are paying off and showing on and off the scale.
- Showing kindness: I am still working on it, but I’m better than I was in the past, working on being kind to people, especially those who I feel have done me wrong or don’t deserve it (for me) is a test of character, if I can be kind to someone despite my feelings for them then I have won. I will continue to work on this ….probably forever.
- Release the negativity: I think this goes along with kindness, releasing the negativity. Sometimes with love and friendship, you all people, or certain situations to occur that are not good for you. And to be honest removing negative, toxic people from my life has been life changing, my goal for the next year is to recognize those toxic, negative people and situations before I get to close
- Being a better person: At the end of my life I want to feel like, everyday despite whatever challenges I face I did the best that I could, I was the best person that I could be… in the past selfishness was something that I practiced without knowing, so I want and continue to change that.
And with all of those things I probably should say stop cursing… but sometimes I need to say F*CK!
Until Next Time….
