January is a month to celebrate new beginnings–a tabula rasa we are all excited to sprinkle some glitter on.
So you ate your heart out and partied like an animal the night before. This year I bet you’re making a promise to yourself to be a better person. You’re going to be more productive and healthy, more patient and tenacious, more thankful and forgiving. The list goes on.
We do that every single year and not all of us, at the end of the year can truly say that writing down New Year’s Resolutions work. Believe me, it’s not some sort of cosmic puppeteer that’s going to walk us through achieving our resolutions.
Nobody else is going to carry us all the way to the gym nor stop us from eating whatever shit we want to clam in our mouths. Resolutions are something not to be written down and forgotten but something to work on every single day.
What are your resolutions?
Have you written them down?
How you can accomplish them?
Have you started working on your resolutions yet?
This is why I’m a little extra careful with my personal resolutions for this year. I made sure I won’t blog about my resolutions for the sake of letting everybody know what I wanted to change for the better.
I wanted to make sure I make the change myself before I start telling the world about it. I wanted to wake up earlier so I made sure I pull myself up to my alarm clock.
I wanted to keep fit. I try either cleaning our apartment or working out every day even for 10 minutes. It has been a rocky experience but I was able to gauge how far I can discipline myself.
According to Maxwell Maltz, a famous author, it takes a minimum (take note: MINIMUM) of 21 days to form a habit. If you’re seriously thinking about pushing through with your little resolutions, then I suggest you try practicing for a month.
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.
This is my first month back in the unemployment world, which gives me a lot of time to meditate and work out the little areas in my life I wanted to improve.
Maybe God chose this particular month of the year to train me into mastering discipline so I could finally, after years and years of making resolutions and excuses, finish the year with a clean conscience that I kept a promise I made to myself.
One of the things I wanted to improve on is consistency and being able to deliver in deadlines which I specifically gave myself. Whatever Babe Files is part of that.
I have started this since I started blogging but I wasn’t able to post every month. And this week had been a little busy so I’m posting this early in the morning. That still counts as end of the month, right?
Coz for me the first day of February starts when I wake up tomorrow haha! Gotta work on my sleeping habits next. tss
