It’s a new year! I’m so excited about all the new opportunities and possibilities a new year brings. Here’s to a new cycle of love, peace, abundance, and harmony for us all!
I have a few resolutions for 2021, and I thought I would share. The first is a big one. It’s something that 2020 really gave me a hard look at, and that was how much my life was full of a habit of fear. So I am starting a new year out with a dedication to retraining myself to have a habit of love instead.
So what does that mean exactly? It means being more gentle with myself, choosing to slow down or redirect my thoughts or attention to more loving things, situations, and outcomes. It means more positive self talk. Doing more things that feel good. Thinking good thoughts about others and situations, including envisioning good outcomes for all. And finding deeper connection with myself and others.
I have some ideas of things I can do to help that, but really I’ve already been putting new habits in place for a little while now. Habits like daily mediation, breath work, journaling, yoga, going for walks alone and sometimes with others, and just choosing fun and exciting things to focus on.
So I plan to continue these habits and be open to any new ones that might pop up. And also to tune in and see how I feel about anything before I act. If it feels too hard, then give it some space and try again.
I also want to make more journals! I love making journals. I love that creative process so much, and I already have a few ideas I can get started on over the next few weeks. I think I enjoy it so much because it’s a combination of several of my passions, which is writing, designing, and self improvement. And they have a quick turnaround. I really love being able to see a finished product in a short time from first conception of an idea. It’s great for boosting confidence too!
And I’m still working on my novel. My plan is to have it done this year (and published). It’s a project I love working on, but it’s playing a longer game, so it’s helpful to me to have the journals to work on so I can see something finished in a shorter amount of time.
I have some yoga projects I want to work on too. They are still in the developmental phase, so we shall see how they progress. My excitement for doing yoga classes comes and goes, so as I feel the mood come over me, I will work on more classes.
Another resolution for 2021 is to be more playful! I tend to get into a serious mode at times, and forget to just play and have fun. I want to do more playing and just spend time being silly!
Another resolution is to learn some new ways to relax. I have found that relaxation is not my “normal”. I tense up a lot, and sometimes it seems like for no good reason. I realize that this has just been a learned habit that I’ve been practicing for years. So this is another relearning project for me to work on in 2021.
And my final resolution is to do more blog posts! I want to do see if I can post at least twice a week (or more). I have a few good ideas for upcoming posts and even a new blog series I’m starting to put together, so keep a look out for those.
That’s all for me! What about you? What kind of new and exciting things is 2021 bringing you? Do you have any resolutions you would like to share? Please feel free to do so in the comments below.
