Healthy Resolutions

I resolve to stop feeling guilty for taking a day off to feed my soul because I need it. For years, I’ve been effectively managing my time. As an adult, I will continue to independently do so.


I resolve to balance out negative and draining experiences with positive ones, although it is the way of the universe to often ensure this happens regardless.


I resolve to smile and laugh. Long and loud. When I am with people I enjoy and appreciate and who enjoy and appreciate me.


I resolve to focus on myself from time to time without absorbing people’s accusations of selfishness because it is often they who are the selfish ones.


I resolve to believe in myself despite what others may say or think they see. Some people come in the guise of guides and mentors, but true guides and mentors should be inspiring and encouraging. Some do this for egotistical reasons.


I resolve to treasure those who appreciate the real me and steer clear of those who want me to change for no good reason and make me feel less than I am because it make them feel better about themselves.
