Alrighty folks, in the spirit of a new year … here’s a great site to check out and the new post today’s post is all about resolutions. Check it out.
Every new year people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves they believe are negative. A majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This year I challenge you to a new resolution. I challenge you to just be yourself. Aisha Elderwyn
Resolutions are motivators and full of good intentions. But, when they breakdown –and of course they always do – they often make you feel worse than when you started. Who needs it?! We thought of 5 resolutions that we know everyone can do and will not only make you happier, but will make someone else happier as well.
1. Make kindness a daily habit
—Give without the expectation of getting something in return
—Smile at someone first and offer a genuine “hi”
—Take $50 and buy 10 Starbucks cards for $5 a pop. Hand them out to anyone who goes above and beyond the norm
—Write your mail carrier a note of thanks
2. Find a cause to support in 2012. There are thousands upon thousands of organizations supporting and bringing awareness to everything from Autism to AIDS to Animals – find something that moves you and get involved.
3. Read a book that you wouldn’t normally read. Find a book that will enlighten and educate you and most of all make you think.
—Steve Jobs by Walter Isaascon
—To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
—Social Innovation by Jason Saul
4. Call your mom!
5. Read Milkshake every day and send it to a friend – how could we resist this one?
