Well, this is it. The last day of 2017. It’s gone by so incredibly fast. I always make resolutions at the beginning of the year, but by the end, I’m eating frozen pizza and watching Netflix too much, regardless of what I “resolved” to do.
This year is going to be different.
I’m about to tell you my five “I Will” statements. My thought process in this is that I don’t want to fall into the same rut I have in years past. I’ve always called them my “resolutions”, but I apparently I am only “resolved” to carry them out into the first of February, if I’m lucky. This year will be different. I can feel it.
1. I WILL eat less processed foods and sugar.
I go through these “health junkie” spurts where I eat clean for about a week, and it makes such a difference even in a short amount of time. My skin is clearer, I have more energy, and I just feel like a better person as a whole. However, I don’t do well about keeping up with it. Someone invites me to my favorite fast food restaurant? Count me in. My mom ordered pizza for us that night? It would be disrespectful to refuse, right? I WILL eat healthier this year and not give into peer pressure.
2. I WILL workout consistently.
I love working out, but when I get caught up in a new Netflix series that I want to dive into right after dinner, I don’t go as often as I should. My body definitely shows improvement whenever I am more active, but I haven’t felt the motivation to be consistent. I WILL workout often, as my body deserves to be in its best shape.
3. I WILL dive deeper in the Word.
This is something that I feel like I’ve improved upon this year, but I could definitely be better. There’s always room for growth when it comes to your faith. I’d love to read through the entire Bible. I WILL grow closer to God and put my trust in Him always.
4. I WILL be more positive.
I complain a lot. It’s not something I’m proud to admit, but it’s something I do often. I WILL focus on the joys and positive aspects of life, not just the negative ones.
5. I WILL NOT compare myself to others.
This one is not a “will”, it’s a “will not”, and it’s probably the biggest one for me. As an avid user of social media, I’m constantly bombarded with photos of the “perfect body”, the “perfect face”, or most of all, the “perfect boyfriend”. I am not those people. I was made in the image of God, and I am beautiful. I don’t have a boyfriend, but does that mean I’m not loved? Of course not! I WILL NOT base my identity on what the world thinks I should be.
I think that covers it.
Love you all.
See ya next year. 😉❤
