❗Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day ❗

Ditching your New Year’s Resolutions today or any day is a great idea IF…..

✳️ The resolution you set actually belonged to somebody else, i.e someone else thought you could do with losing a few pounds, or your boss expects you to go for promotion and you know that this role may bring you more money, but the extra responsibility, hours and workload makes your soul sad.

So your resolutions were consciously or unconsciously set by someone else’s agenda definitely ditch them.

✳️ Also, and one of my Pet Peeve’s is, if you are completing a resolution for the sake of completing it, for example you set a target to read  a book a month and you started off with good intentions, a bucket of willpower and a swath of ‘Ra~Ra’, only to find a couple of books in that reading doesn’t bring you joy, but, you know, stiff up lip and all that, you’ve set this goal so you are jolly well going to finish it!  NO! Ditch this resolution today.

Ditching your New Year’s Resolutions today or any day is NOT a great idea IF…..

❇️ These are your true goals, resolutions that you set, goals that bring you joy, resolutions that make your heart sing, goals that you know express your true self.

As an aside to be sure these are YOUR goals and no one else’s (as above) this is a great guide outlining the permission you have to set your own goals You have permission this post also comes with a free audio and poster.  https://leoniedawson.com/you-have-permission-the-free-affirmation-mp3-poster/

Ditching your New Year’s Resolutions today or any day is NOT a great idea IF…..

❇️ You will regret ditching them, you may not regret ditching them today or tomorrow, in this short timescale you may be relieved to have the burden lifted off of you.  At some point in the future these regrets will come back to you. The most common regrets are:

* I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. …

* I wish I hadn’t worked so hard. …

* I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings. …

* I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. …

* I wish that I had let myself be happier.

❗ If you ditch your resolutions today will you have future regrets?  Will you berate yourself for not having the courage to see your resolutions through?

If so, even by a smidge, Ditching your New Year’s Resolutions today or any day is NOT a great idea.

There are 348 days left this year

One baby step a day will make a HUGE difference

Take the first one and repeat again tomorrow.

For myself, one of my goals is to help as many people speak up for themselves in 2019 ~ so I’m definitely keeping Resolutions

Let me know which ones you ditch

and which ones you keep.

Love Karen xx 💜
