The New Year is not the only time you can make resolutions. Make them whenever you want. If you want to make some positive changes in your life, you can make them whenever you want and you can do them. Here’s the thing; positive changes are easier if you are already doing things for yourself. If you’re not sure what you should always be doing for yourself, read on to find out.
Spend Time With the Right People
If your friends and family aren’t happy for you at all times, ditch them. No one you spend time with should make you feel bad about yourself or your life, and they shouldn’t make you feel competitive – unless it’s game night. Then it’s on.
Make You the Priority
You can’t spend your life making everyone else happy if you’re not making yourself happy. Forget making other people happy all the time and focus on you. So what if you make the best cookies of anyone you know? That doesn’t mean you should have to scramble to make them for every single occasion someone has. Say no. Do yourself a favor for once.
Be Yourself…and Be Proud of You
Look, we all want to be appropriate and kind, but sometimes we forget that we just need to be us. No, you don’t have to tell your boss that her choice in college football teams is awful, but you don’t have to pretend to like a different team, either. Be proud of yourself.
Enjoy What You Have
If you want to live on the beach but you live in a high-rise in the middle of the city, enjoy it. You can dream of living on the beach, but you still have to appreciate everything you have while you have it so that you can enjoy your life. You have a lifetime to work for things you really want, but you still have to enjoy what you already have to be really, truly happy.
