A New Year’s Resolution Idea That Will Make You Feel Better About Yourself

The new year is right around the corner. Will you spend the next month trying to decide how to be better? Wishing for a change that will surely make you a happier, healthier, more focused person? Mapping out New Year’s resolutions and hoping you’ll be able to stick to them? I’ve done that in the past – haven’t we all?

Well this year I want to do it differently. This year I want to spend January remembering what I’ve done right and what I love about myself.

  1. Very interesting idea. I am still in Christmas planning mode, but would like to spend more time thinking about the year ahead in the last 2 weeks of the year

  2. What a great idea! This is going to be really tough, because at this time of the year, some of us focus on what we should stop doing or what we should do better. The idea of reflecting on the good things and continuing with it will surely give us a positive frame of mind as we enter the new year. Thanks for sharing!

  7. LOL, I am not sure if this is a brilliant way to avoid making silly resolutions or not. I gave up doing annual resolutions a long time ago. I do however sit and take stock of what has made me happy etc often. I sadly also do time-planning things and fail at keeping that up

  8. Hello! Love the worksheet! I was wondering if you could please update the year to 2015 and 2016? Would love to use this for my 6th grade class at the start of the year!
