Of course, with a new year comes many new resolutions. I do not see the ideals of “resolutions” as many others do. Instead of “eating better” or “being more reliable to my friends”, I believe a New Year should be a clean start. Rather than fixing your problems, start afresh. Rather than stopping something you don’t think is for your positive for well-being, simply remove the negativity from the fact. New Years is entirely about the psychological pleasure and determination to set goals and create self-satisfaction. With this I say, don’t dwell on the negative aspects of the past year. Look past everything you’ve accomplished and consider it a new standard.
As for me, I am considering this new year with a new way of living. I have created a new person, accomplished many things, and lost a lot as well. I created a new standard for myself during 2010. Now 2011 is a way to improve those standards and let the 2010 John shine. Sometimes it takes a good amount of self-confidence to be able to step out of your body and look at it from the point of view of others.
My idea of a good “resolution” would consider a recent diet/lifestyle change: I started the Atkins diet with my father. I think any diet regime would have worked fine but after a good talk with my pops I think this intrigued him most (considering how much we both dig protein based foods!). The diet is no way meant for me to lose a whole lot of weight because I don’t have that much to lose. It’s meant to satisfy and fill a void that I had never been able to in the past. This is being 100% confident about my health and self-determination. Being able to achieve the results I’m looking for is already helping my confidence as I begin entering the job market again since I’ve recently been unemployed.
Well, that’s it for me today. I know this was a scrambled post, but it served as a good way to jump start my blog.
Cheers and Happy New Years!
