Let me guess, New Year new me huh. It’s that time of year when most people open to the world about their goals for the New Year. Venting as they type up their post, write in their journal, fill up their agenda or make a vision board for what they would like to happen throughout the New Year.
I don’t know about you but 2018 reminds me of the backdrop that wasn’t a good idea to have in your picture. It reminds me of living in New York standing in the middle of the street trying to get a taxi, but the drivers continue to pass by. Sorry for being dramatic, I have never lived in New York, but I feel like that has happened to someone before. My point is, I survived 2018 but there are several and I mean several things that I have learned from 2018 that has given me an idea of how I want 2019 to go.
For 2019 I will be working on my three C’s. Consistency, commitment, and consciousness. The first two C’s intertwine, however, there is a hung difference between the them. Let’s just say that consistency is the daily routine you create for yourself. Will you wake up early everyday to have more time? Would you stay active for a certain amount of days throughout the week to lose that extra weight? Will you start reading every day to broaden your horizon? commitment is the length of time that you intend to stick to this routine you create for yourself. The time frame of the commitment is up to you. Is this a lifetime goal or a 6-month trial?
The good thing is that you have the power to decide and the consciousness to understand what you do not have the power to control. There may be a time when the situation is completely out of your control, however, the one thing you can control is your response to that situation. It was so easy to type that previous sentence! Sometimes it is hard to work on responding in a situation that is out of your control. It is something that should be practiced consistently. There is a rainbow of emotions that each of us experience, we all tend to express these emotions differently. What goals will you be working on in 2019?
