With the fresh start the new year brings, I have been thinking a lot about what I want to accomplish this year, as I’m sure many of you are doing as well. Rachel Gadiel, writer of Nourish, a lifestyle blog, wrote 8 statements that make up her “manifesto” for 2015. It’s Rachel’s way to create what she calls her “best and most intentional year yet.” Inspired by this I’ve decided to share my own manifesto which does include a few of Rachel’s statements that really resonated with me.
1. Let kindness rule.
Be kind, be patient, be understanding, to both others and yourself. I believe that the energy you put out there draws in those that share the same values and virtues.
2. Be your own cheerleader.
Give yourself a chance to succeed by visioning a positive outcome for your goals. I challenge you to work towards letting go of the negativity in your life and focusing on the positive.
3. Start each day with a purpose.
This year, I’m hankering down on what I want to accomplish in the future and actually making steps to get closer to it.
4. Discover something new each day.
Over the past few years I feel like I’ve grown quite a bit. I’ve slowly made discoveries on what I love, not just what I like. This year I hope to continue this journey of learning more about myself.
5. Believe that anything is possible.
Most days I do believe in this, but it’s worth a friendly reminder once in a while.
Now I challenge you to jot down your 2015 manifesto!
