Hi everyone! I hope your Saturday is going well! Now that Christmas is over, the new year awaits us! Katy Walker from Stereotypically Able was kind enough to write a guest post for Life of an El Paso Woman. Here is her guest post below: You can check out/follow her blog here.
Preparation for a New Year
By Katy Walker
As 2015 comes to a close, I cannot be more excited to see what 2016 has in store. It also got me thinking of three dreaded words: New Years resolutions. Growing up, I always tried to make New Years resolutions. I’d give it a month, and then it would end up going to the wayside. I am sure I am not the only one who has had the same struggle every year. This is why I stopped making and relying on New Years resolutions.
I honestly think not having the pressure of New Years resolutions with a time limit helps people achieve what they want to do. At least that is what makes it easier for me. For example, a few years ago, I told myself I was going to do at least one thing that scared me and took me out of my comfort zone. What was the one thing I did to take me out of my comfort zone, you may ask? I ended up riding California Screamin’ at California Adventure. I had never been on a roller coaster that has a loop. It honestly scared me because I thought I would end up falling off of the ride when we would get to the loop. I am so glad that I did that though because I taught myself that I can do things that are out of my comfort zone. My confidence became higher from that little adventure.
I would like to encourage you. If you are one to do New Years resolutions, that is great. However, do not get so focused on having a timeline to complete it because you might miss the fun and adventure that it can bring.
I would love to turn the conversation to you now and ask: What is one thing you are wanting to leave in 2015? What is one thing you are looking forward to bringing into the new year? I am looking forward to reading all of your comments. I look forward to keeping the conversation going.
I would like to thank Lisa for giving me this opportunity to share my thoughts on her page and connect with all her amazing readers.
