New year, new beginnings

Friday, January 12, 2018

Hello 2018! It’s a new year once again. Have you listed down your new year’s resolution/s?

People tend to list down things that will change their behavior or eating habits for a new beginning. Let us be reminded that a person can change anytime of the year. Change must come from us – our own personal choice, our own decision.

For many people, a new year means another year full of blessings, a year of opportunities and yes, a new beginning.

Let’s start 2018 and end the year with a positive attitude. In short, let us always have a positive approach in life. Here are some ways to have a positive disposition:

N – never hurt anyone
E – encourage, not hinder others
W – wear a smile always

Y – yearn to be a better person
E – excel in your work and favorite pastime
A – accept things you cannot change
R – rest and have fun (self-care is important!)

Also be sure to love yourself. Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses. Be a buddy, not a bully. Be kind to others. Pray to God. Have faith.

It is okay to have good days, as well as, bad days. Mistakes and failures are normal, accept it and learn from it. Achievements are blessings, be grateful.

Happy New Year!*
