With another year past us, we look forward to the experiences that this new year will bring. Personally, I’ve noticed that many people take “new year” as a starting point for committing to a new goal, resolution, or habit. It should be different; I believe that creation of goals, resolutions, and habits should be continuous throughout the year and not only at a point in time. With every new goal, I believe that the key to maintaining and achieving it is through of a support network. A support network could be friends, family, or even a routine that helps you stay on track. My goal this year is to keep consistent in practicing to write and speak.
On top of my personal goal, I want to to commit to being a supporter for another. The person that comes to my mind is my mom. For years and still to this day has trouble with keeping a healthy body. Doctors give her medicine for her diabetes, and she consumes pills for her high blood pressure. She is starting to feel the effects of aging and I want to be able to help her take up exercising. The reason I think many people don’t exercise, and just speaking for my mom, is that they feel as it is a chore. I agree it takes discipline; however, it is way easier to exercise when you find an activity worth doing. For me it was basketball. I would spend hours playing basketball and was not even aware of the calories I burned. I was in it for enjoyment, and if it made me healthy as I participated, great for me!
What are your new year’s goals?
Who are you supporting?
P.S. I’m highly thinking of firing my own fireworks next year 😀
