These highly positive new year resolutions will help you get closer to the common goal of happiness and contentment. Try them out!
Another year has gone by and has left us with some sweet and bitter memories; with some moments to cherish forever and some regrets! We all have numerous New Year resolutions in mind… plans to adapt a new habit or forgo an old one. From exercising or switching to a healthy diet, quitting a bad habit or pursuing a hobby, the promises made to one’s self in the beginning of a year are endless.
The resolutions are nothing but our attempt to achieve a life full of happiness and contentment. There are a few resolutions we should all make to achieve this common goal.
Every day we have pleasant and unpleasant moments that are beyond our control; but whether they affect us and in what way is a matter of our choice. Choose to not be influenced by others’ actions and behaviour, choose to ignore unhappy thoughts, choose to not seek happiness in others. Happiness doesn’t just happen; it is a choice we make every day! Smile often, be grateful for your blessings and take time to do things that make you happy. After all, happiness is a common goal that all of us work towards.
Self doubt is out; self love is in. Stop doubting and criticizing yourself. Nobody is flawless, but it is imperfection that makes us human. Embrace your weaknesses as you embrace your strengths. Self love acts as a potion for all the other relationships around us. Love yourself unconditionally and without any expectations! (Don’t wait to lose weight or be more organized in order to love yourself.) Forgive yourself for the mistakes you made, let go of the bad experiences and treat yourself well, it sets the tone for how others will treat you.
Life can be complicated or simple, perfect or flawed, joyful or miserable; it depends on what you make it. To you your life may not seem like the best of what you deserve but to someone else you might appear to be living a fairytale. We don’t always get a perfect life but we can make it a happy life. After all it is your ‘Zindagi’; live it to the fullest and the best you can.
Fear is what holds us back from trying new avenues, reaching out to people, and speaking our mind. Become fearless! Attempt doing things that you have never done in past; be it travelling alone or trying a new sport, it is bound to lift up your spirit. Make yourself available to new people and new opportunities. Every person you meet and every situation you come across is an opportunity to learn. And most of all don’t be afraid to speak your mind; what you think and how you feel. Expressing yourself is the most amazing form of respect that you can show to yourself.
Our mind is the most powerful tool we can use to change our lives. What we think determines our actions and our destiny. As quoted by Lousie Hay – “Every Thought we think is creating our future”. Negative thoughts can drain us of our energy; positive thoughts, on the other hand inspire and motivate us to reach our goals. Positive thinking guides us to find solutions to problems leading to desired results.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
