I believe that resolutions should encourage us, not make us feel guilty. At mid-January, I hear more complaints around me than bursts of pride. Why wouldn’t we dip into our hearts to make this new year a permanent gift?
A clean slate that permits you to dream about achieving coveted goals will energize some, and stress the rest of them… It’s so easy to forget oneself when work takes most of our days. For my part, I renounced rigid resolutions by choosing feel good objectives, pleasing and comforting to me.
Let me share with you those personal resolutions, where I fished into my past and present passions, as well as my future aspirations.
PAST : Read my magazines, cover to cover.
As a teen and young adult, I read all my magazines, every month; a cornucopia of fun and information where the artist and the marketer in me swam with relish. Life’s whirlwind now sees those hundreds glossy pages pile up after a quick browse. Such a waste! So I’m up to it again, to the great pleasure of my eyes, my head and my heart.
PRESENT : Be more daring with makeup.
Cool nails. Check. Flashy lips or daring eyeliner? Check. A simple way for feeling very womanly and/or rebellious in a few minutes, at minimal cost? Double check!
FUTURE : To always write more, every day.
Be it into my journal, for this blog or for my professional projects, writing can take so many forms! Liberation, inspiration, creation, planning… The act of writing makes my smile and opens my mind. Bonus? More chances to use my new iPad mini that follows me everywhere, and those cute notebooks I’m collecting – inspiration can strike anytime.
For 2014, I wish you’ll get all and more of what you need. We have the chance to be unique creatures, all of us. Don’t be afraid to shine, to slow down or to accelerate… 2014 is YOUR year!
