Resolutions for 2021

So, for every new year, we always make resolutions or goals. Most of the time, the resolutions don’t stick or we just don’t do them. I’m going to say to you right now: that’s perfectly fine! This year has been tough for many people, so live the life the way you want to. While it’s nice to make goals and reach them, it’s also important to be happy and do what’s best for yourself.

Now, some people are happy making lists and checking them off. If you are that person, good for you! For some, setting goals and reaching them is easier. We’re all different and we all work differently.

For me, I like to strive for goals that are actually achievable. I’m not going to say, “Hey. I’m going to make a million dollars next year,” and then be crushed when it doesn’t happen. Goals like that aren’t attainable. So, here are my goals for 2021.

Spend more time with my family: I’m sure for many of us, COVID-19 has affected our families in one way or another. Being forced to stay apart to keep each other safe has made me value our time together even more. Once we get past this pandemic, I won’t take anything for granted.

Keep going to the gym: During quarantine, I’m sure a lot of us found ourselves gaining some weight because gyms were closed and we had to stay home all the time. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. I plan to keep going to the gym as much as I can and stay fit to keep myself from getting a gut.

When it comes to resolutions, remember that life is short and things can only get better! So, when making your resolutions for 2021, don’t set yourself up for failure. Set yourself up to succeed!
