What is it about being a New Year that makes things so different?
It's just another day, just another month. A tick or the clock, a turn of the calendar.
But there's something about the newness that gives people hope.
Just like starting over, a clean slate. A messed up past, but a perfect present, with an unknown awaiting future.
There's something about day one with the opportunity to make anything, do anything, become anyone.
So then there's resolutions.
And I once heard someone say something like, about how if whatever you were going to change, it wasn't worth it to you to change before, why would you start now?
In a sense that's true I guess.. but if you look at it from a clean slate perspective, there's no past. No mess ups. No failures. That's why they're wanting to start new.
I have a million things I want to change about myself and how I live my life.
But I was thinking of the most important types of things.
-Keep on reading scriptures every day, get good grades, be a better person, and stuff like that..
I had a huge list..
BUT then I was thinking. I over think everything. I over analyze everything.
Sometimes I get so scared that something is going to end that I can't even enjoy it in the now.
So then I molded my new new years resolutions. And yes some will prolly change, I might add a couple...
But here we go.
1. Live simply and fully.
-See beauty in what is seemingly insignificant, don't waste time on the unimportant.
2. Take more pictures.
-Take the time to capture moments to have for a lifetime.
3. Laugh more.
-Relax, Unwind, don't stress, smile. See the bright side in everything.
4. Get the immune system of a champion.
-I've been getting sick real easy lately. So this comes with eating healthy and keeping my body in shape.
5. Be kind
-"Every day try a little harder to be a little better." -Gordon B. Hinckley, have no enemies.
6. Dream big.
-Look forward to the future, don't live in fear of tomorrow. "Come what may, and love it." -Elder Wirthlin, remember it's all in the Lord's hands.
