Resolve to be happy

This year has gone by rather quickly and has been filled with highs and lows. I’ve met a few goals and missed a few too. In 2019 I’m not tying myself down to unrealistic expectations or a list of goals. I’m resolving to be happy and what that looks like can change moment by moment but it all feels the same in my heart.

Maybe happiness is creating memories with friends and family, or taking the chance to step out and grab ahold of your dreams, maybe it’s quiet time reading a book or cuddling with your child. No matter what happiness looks like to you resolve to work hard in ensuring it for yourself.

Practice acts of self-love, be patient with yourself. Forgive yourself for unrealistic expectations you placed upon yourself. Believe in yourself. Have vision without boundaries over your life. Your life can be all encompassing it doesn’t have to be an either or existence.

Take control of your life and cherish and safeguard your joy. Don’t allow waves of negativity to overwhelm and overtake you. Life can only be lived day by day, so enjoy each moment as they come.

Resolve to be free of the expectations of others. Happiness and peace of mind have no specific size so don’t get caught up on things you have yet to change and focus on changing your perspective. Live your life in the way that allows you to reach the maximum potential of happiness and then repeat year after year!
