Making New Year's Resolutions is something you may choose to do year after year. It's also an activity that you may end up beating yourself up about before January is even over due to guilt for not following through. Some of the goals we set for ourselves are dreamy seeming and really hard to commit to. In fact, often times the goals we make in a new year are more about what we think we should do versus what we really, really want for ourselves.
If what you want for this new year more than anything, is to be a happier you, I have an idea for a guilt-free resolution this year! Why not resolve to be kinder to yourself - including not being hard on yourself for learning to do something new for you. If you must resolve at all, resolve to use words like practice, try, and work-on as you aspire to do better at being a kinder, gentler YOU to you - while also remembering that you're just getting started, and perfection is never part of the plan.
Because I would love to inspire you to put you first, I would love nothing more than for you to join in some new-year-good-year fun on Instagram! (If you're not following us, follow @sunaffirmations)
All of January 2016, we'll be using the hashtag #GoodYearGoodYou on Instagram and following the day-by-day ideas outline in the image below. There will be no rules - only FUN! Play every day, or only on the days that you want :) As an added bonus, each day you play your Instagram username will gain a ticket in a draw for a free gift from Sunny Braveheart! It is my hope that no matter the reason for playing along, you'll win!
