We are well into the month of November and I can already taste my uncle’s famous Christmas Gammon. It’s so scary how fast this year has gone, I honestly can’t believe we will be celebrating the New Year in exactly 51 Days.
I tend not to commit to resolutions, I rather make promises to myself that I know are attainable and realistic. November is my month to reflect on the year and set a new tone for the coming year. If you would have told me In January that I would be where I am today I would have cringed, cried and laughed. So much has happened in this year that it’s safe to say your destiny and path is never guaranteed nor controlled by you alone.
There comes a time (no time like the present) when you need to accept the things you cannot change and move forward with a new attitude and outlook on life. I don’t regret anything that has happened this year. Everything I have endured whether it’s good or bad has been a valuable lesson.
A promise I’d like to make to myself is to be more forgiving of my past mistakes, to smile everyday even if I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders, to constantly encourage others around me including myself and to compliment others more whether it be on their appearance, their personality or their ability to make others smile. I promise to be more positive and forget the negative vibes. Every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.
If you can make one change in your attitude towards life what would it be? Would it be enough to make you a happier person? If there’s one thing you should always try to strive towards, it should always be the expansion of your happiness. You come first, sometimes being selfish is exactly what’s needed to manifest your self-worth.
