We see a lot of people making New Year resolutions that only ever last a few weeks. So why not forget the resolutions this time around and focus on things from the past 12 months that you need to let go of.
Welcome in the new year by reflecting on this past year. What are the things that you need to say goodbye to in order to be able to say hello to the new year, new adventures, new lessons and new experiences?
Say goodbye to the people who never give the effort back to you
A lot of us are guilty of missing someone who doesn't miss us at all, or caring too much about people who don't care half as much. It's exhausting and time-wasting and I'd like to see less of it this year.
Say goodbye to excessive use of social media
You can go without social media. You don't have to know what other people are doing every second of the day, so put your phone down and be in the moment.
Say goodbye to poisonous relationships
If someone is bringing negativity into your life, it's time to learn how to shut them out and to be okay with that. They say you should surround yourself with people who are like you or who inspire you, not people who bring you down.
Say goodbye to the negative things people have said about you
It's easy to hold on to other people's comments that hurt us the most. Instead, make more room for the positive comments, praises and compliments that you've received.
Say goodbye to missed opportunities
When reflecting back on this year, say goodbye to that trip that was cancelled or that lunch date with an old friend that was postponed. Make things happen!
Say goodbye to the pressure of impressing others
Do more things for yourself and not for the approval of other people. At the end of the day, you're happiness and well-being is paramount and you're the only one in charge!
Happy New Year!
