37. The Year Of "Is It Worth It?" + What To Expect in 2017
If you've read my last blog post, you'll know that I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions.
It's true. I don't.
I just believe that resolutions can sometimes set you up for failure.
They sound good on January 1st and I know that you truly have every intention of holding them to be true all year. But, I just believe they're the wrong way to go about thinking about a brand new year.
Think of all the possibilities that are available for you in a new year.
You have a clean slate. A completely new start.
Another chance to do something different.
So, why do we continue to ask for the same things over + over again year after year expecting THIS year to be any different?
For the last few years I've chosen to steer away from resolutions and focus more on a theme.
Last year's theme was to be more selfish.
And so, in everything I did, I put myself first.
Which, isn't something I usually do.
It worked out really beautifully.
I wasn't perfect at it. And there were times I still chose to put others before me.
But it wasn't an unrealistic goal.
It wasn't something I had to post about on social media all the time.
It was just a state of mind I chose to have through each and every day of 2016.
Today's podcast I'm talking about the theme for 2017: "Is it worth it?"
Towards the end of 2016 I caught myself saying "that wasn't worth it" or "man, that was totally worth it!"
And, I couldn't understand why I wasn't asking myself that question BEFORE I acted.
I could see how marvelous the shift would've been if I had.
Also, I'm going to set the expectation for LoDownLiving as a brand in 2017.
This isn't something I've really talked about in the past on the show but, I think it's finally time.
