The new year has commenced, and the holidays are over, but there is still a sense of freshness and new beginnings in the air. For many people the start of a new year is about resolutions and improvements and new starts. It is a time to start afresh with a clean slate and to improve on the experiences and iterations of the previous year. A new image and new goals. If you are the type of person who likes to set goals and who views the start of a new year as a time to consider ways to build and improve yourself and your lot in life, here are a few ideas to get you going.
Are you happy with your look and the way that you present yourself to the world? If you are not, take stock and consider what you can do better. Perhaps you want a trendier hairstyle, or you want to try out a beard. Perhaps it’s time to wear skinnier jeans or start hitting the gym. Whatever it is that you want to change about your image the answers are not hard to find. If your friends can’t point you in the right direction, then the internet certainly can. A simple search for a phrase like, ‘hairdressers Townsville’ will yield the addresses and contact details of all the relevant operators in your area. Have a look at their websites and book an appointment. Here’s hoping that you will be happy with the results.
Are you happy with your job or your relationship (or lack of it), and generally of where you are in life? Do yourself a favour and take an afternoon off to take stock of these things. A life census if you will. And if you are not happy then make it your goal to try and change things. Comfort zones are bad places to be and you should strive to push yourself a bit in 2019. You don’t have to follow the adage of do one thing a day that scares you, but you absolutely must try harder to impact life as opposed to simply letting it happen to you. If you want to meet people join a dating site. If you want a better job send out CV’s. Who knows what will come of it, the point is, if you are not opening yourself up to opportunities then they will never find you?
Make 2019 the year that you ask some bigger questions. What is your purpose and why are you here? A wise person once said that if you don’t know what the goals are you will never score. Very sagely indeed. The answers to these questions will differ from person to person but it is important that you are able to answer them. If you know what your purpose is then it will help to inform the rest of your life and lifestyle, it will give you a sense of calm. So spend some time refreshing your relationship with yourself and your God and see what sort of difference that makes. You might just be surprised.
