This is the perfect time to look back on your New Year’s Resolutions and see how far you’ve come. Often, we leave our goals on pieces of paper that we haven’t returned to after New Years. At the end of the year, we are struck with the feeling that we didn’t do anything worth celebrating. (Which is why we ALL need to journal, but that’s another post!)
There are days when you’re happy and full of light - days full of laughter, of peace, the once in awhile stress free moments living life full of love. And there are other days where everything feels like it’s going wrong and you feel drained even though you weren’t really productive at all. One version of you is happy and one of you isn’t. Let’s figure out why.
In today’s society, we are so eager to be productive. I know it seems hypocritical that I’ve just written a post on how to stay productive and am now criticizing productivity in the world. I believe we should be productive. However, there’s something to be said for taking a break, for settling in and looking around us instead of always rushing to the next thing.
No matter what time of year, we can always try improving and becoming the best versions of ourselves. It’s when we give way to our desires of the now that our ambition and productivity stops. We try to serve ourselves via instant gratification, forgetting the progress we’ve made leading up to this point. We have to remind ourselves of where we want to go, and how to get there.
