It seems that with time, the older you get, the more you become aware of certain things. I realized that the presence of people we love is worth much more than what they offer us. Not that a gift is not a pleasure to receive, but is it really the holiday spirit? If I had been suggested to exchange a gift for a moment, I would have done it for the Christmas of past years. Without hesitation.
I think December is a mild month. A month where it's good to remember the good things of the year. This is also the time to take stock of the negative things that have happened. This is a time of the year when I like to do a great job in my life. For me, this is where ever it happens. I give myself the right to decide what will re-enter my life for the new year and what will remain behind. A bit like a wish list.
This year, I felt that I blossomed on certain levels. Especially at the level of decisions that are good for me. I want to continue in this direction. That's why I decided to share with you my wishes for the coming year.
Pay attention to yourself.
I wish to pay attention to myself more. Oh, it's not a question of fitness, but of health. I want to sleep more, move more, eat well and know when to rest.
Let the negative go
I also want to focus on the positive. Leave negative things aside. Toxic relationships: bye. Complicated friendships: bye. Need to justify yourself: bye. Betting on the good instead of the bad will save me time and allow me to do better things.
Learn to say no
I want to be able to say no more often. We inflict us with heavy situations, simply because we are afraid of the reaction that a no can create! Do you want to go to the movies on Tuesday? No, that's it. You want to go on a second date even tho you know that it did not click? No thanks, I pass my turn. That's as simple as that. Say NO.
Finally, I also want to pay attention to my consumption. I am already a conscious consumer but I think there is always room for improvement. And therefore Thinking more before buying, selecting items for their quality and not for sales, buying more local. And simply, Buy less.
These wishes are not resolutions, because I do not want to feel guilty if I do not realize them. I just hope that these little positive thoughts will help me improve my quality of life, just to get the best in 2019 and I hope they will inspire you to do the changes you need to improve your life!
Think about your wishes and realize them! It is precious.
