Just like everyone else, I made my New Years resolution (Hopefully I can keep them) and they are as follows:
- Treat my body well
- Read more
- And more than anything just be happy
These are simple resolutions but it’s so easy to get distracted and caught up in life. I made it a habit of falling asleep while watching Netflix (I would binge watch shows on top of shows) but now I’m trying to get back into reading. So I went to the library and checked out Coming Up for Air by George Orwell and Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. I want to limit how much I use electronics and watch tv, I think it’s kind of ridiculous how I’m so attached to my phone and Ipad.
I am also keeping track of what I’ve been eating, recently my older brother and his family visited for the holidays and my sister in law told me how she journals what she eats and it has worked for her in her efforts to eat better. I’ve always wanted to do this and she gave me the motivation I needed to actually do it. (Thanks Tabitha! <3) So I bought a cute little planner that I am absolutely in love with, I’ve only been doing journaling what I eat for three days but I’m so excited and it does help me a lot! I don’t want to eat like a bunch of gross food and write it down, it’s a little embarrassing to read back on that, so that’s kind of my motivation to not eat fattening foods.
Along with journaling, I’ve started my parasite cleanse again because in the past couple of months with all the holidays and food I wasn’t paying any mind as to what I was eating. Consequently, I now feel horrible, like in my gut, I feel gross. I’m tired all the time and extremely lazy, I hate feeling this way. So I’m taking my parasite cleanse to get rid of all the bugs that made their way into my body.
In 2014 I did a lot of things to make others happy while I’m not happy, not necessarily sad but just not happy. And I’m trying to work on that. It’s only been 7 days into the new year but I have been happy this whole time, genuinely happy. It is an incredibly nice feeling, hopefully it’ll last.
