A New Year Post

I posted this in my VIP private facebook group on NYE and I thought it was so good, that I wanted to share it with you! it was straight from my heart and there is little editing.  If you resonate with this, please comment.  I want to hear your story!

Happy New Year! I hope you all have a great evening.

I was thinking about this time of year and why is it that people are down. Do you think it may be because the resolutions and goals we made this time LAST year fell apart?

We are sad because we aren't where we thought we would be?

I do believe in setting goals, but I think we should be careful of what kind of goals we set.
How about setting goals like:
1) treating myself and others kinder
2) having more fun.
3) eating vegetables every meal
4) reading the entire bible
5) working out 3 days a week

Don't say I want to lose 50 pounds, instead, say I will eat healthier, exercise more, sleep more, smile more.

If we set goals that we don't have ultimate control over, then we become disappointed.

I hope this makes sense. I have a sense of excitement when I set my goal of having more fun in 2017.

If I were to set my goal to Press a 24kg kettlebell, (which I really want to do), then if I don't get there, I will feel sad. When in all actuality, all I want is to be happy and have fun in 2017.

So instead, I'll set my goal to move daily and follow a program to increase my press. I'm not going to have some end number.

I hope you get what I'm trying to say and take my advice...or not!

Either way, be happy, love hard and be kind to yourself this year.
