This year, perhaps it's time to focus on a different kind of resolution, one's that you can commit to and incorporate into your life more easily that you may think:
1) Appreciate what you have - always comparing to others? Wishing you had more? Grateful people are happier people are more successful people - step back and see all you have and all that you are, and take the time to appreciate life for what it is now.
2) Decide on what you want and commit to making it happen - saying you don't know what you want is a form of procrastination is a form of fear. Dare to dream, ask yourself what you really want, and go for it.
3) Stop complaining - start doing. How long have you put up with that job you hate, that boss that gets on your nerves, that commute to work, that friend that only takes, that lack of funds, that leaky roof... whether a new job or a new roof, you can fix it, you just have to start taking action. Now.
4) Connect with the people that matter, distance yourself from the ones that don't - old friends and family may always be there, but make the time to appreciate them, pick up the phone, say hi...it may make someone's day, even yours. By the same token, if you are not getting what you need from a relationship, either accept it for what it is, or walk away.
5) Be honest - you are only lying to yourself.
6) Be kind to yourself - you wouldn't speak to others the way you speak to yourself, and you are the most important person in your world, watch what you are saying, you are listening and creating negative emotions that can easily be replaced with a few kind words.
7) Let go - Rid yourself of old things e.g. old clothes that remind you you used to be better, old relationships that remind you you used to be worse. You are perfect as you are now.
8) See the positive. Negative emotions empty your day of joy, and can often stop you from seeing opportunities. Feeling guilty about something that is not your problem, feeling sad about something that happened twenty years ago, worrying about something that might (but probably won't) happen next week...take a different perspective, and see the positive.
9) Cross (at least) one thing off your bucket list - no bucket list?? Write one. Learn something newCan't afford to travel, sky dive, bungee jump? Do it for charity. There is always a way.
10) Be in the moment - there are so many distractions in life; smart phones, Facebook, TV. By all means, be part of the modern world, but if a catch up with an old friend is spent communicating with someone else on social media you need to re-evaluate what is important before you lose what truly matters.
