I am an idealist. Myers Briggs told me so.
As an iNtuitive, I love conceptualizing about the future, the possible, and the uncharted territory around me. I prefer to look at what could be rather than what currently is. Tie that with the fact that I am also a Feeler, one who processes information through emotions and values, and you have one warm, fuzzy, positive, encouraging, glass-half full SOB. That’s me.
And my idealist self is truer than ever when the new year is approaching.
Every year between December 15th-31st, I start planning out how I am going to lose 15 pounds, set a budget, and conquer the world during the upcoming year.
But it never happens.
Don’t get me wrong, I love transitional moments. I believe there is something innate inside us that is constantly looking for a fresh start. That’s the beauty of grace, everyday is a new start. And I can see how the transition from one calendar year to the next can seem monumental.
But recognize that there is no better moment than now to start working on yourself.
Do not wait for the future to start managing your goals!
Let’s start a New Years Revolution and get a head start on our resolutions. Maybe if we can keep it up till midnight, the new year will carry us farther than we thought it would.
- Start: What habits or activities do you want to make part of your daily/weekly/monthly rhythm which you know will be healthy for your overall well-being? (Examples: exercise, resting, reading, journaling, yoga, prayer, budgeting) You decide.
- Stop: We all have things that we are apart of which take up our time, drain our energy, and add nothing to our overall well-being. Analyze your life rhythms and isolate the ones which really are not for your benefits. Create a plan to end these rhythms before the beginning of the new year.
