2017 is in full swing, so let’s talk resolutions. In the past, I’ve given New Year Resolutions a go. Though I, like most, don’t end up seeing them through for too long. This year, I am entering the year with a “2017 Goal” as I call it. Kind of an overall theme to call upon each day when I need a little inspiration or I am feeling overwhelmed:
Think of every item you own as a reflection of you. Every thing connected with you is part of your image. Your nails, the cleanliness of your car, the tidiness of your home, even your phone background all add or detract from your joy. Put more thought and intention into every action, really begin to curate your life.
My goal isn’t meant in a materialistic sense, though it could come across that way. It also does not mean we should expect perfection of ourselves. I have a dog, baby, and husband to take care of each day, my house will not be immaculate at any given moment, but it will (hopefully) always be maintained. I believe that to be an achievable task for me. You cannot always control how fancy your car is, you can control how clean you choose to keep it. You may not be able to afford a manicure, you can afford soap, water, and ten minutes a week to trim and file your nails.
Make small changes where you can and I believe that is where life really starts to improve.
