4 Attainable New Years Resolutions

Resolutions you won't break after the first day, for mind body and soul.

4 Attainable New Years Resolutions
Cailey Walls

Every year people across the world, people set resolutions for themselves. I think people set goals or resolutions that aren't always attainable. Although I think that it's great to dream big, I think it's important to set some goals you can achieve. Here are some common resolutions and how I have altered them for myself.

1. Losing Weight

This one is always on everyone's resolution list. It's obvious when you walk into the gym and it's packed with people you have never seen before. I would love to own a gym and get everyone's money when they sign up for a plan they won't stick to. Really, it's a great tactic that these owners have.

"Yo, lady that is not how you use that and I would love to use it right now. So please get off."

My resolution is to not only exercise more, but to also drink more water. I want to get healthy for myself. Instead of trying to stick to a diet you can't follow, drink more water. You can have that cookie after you have worked out. By filling yourself with water there are more benefits then disadvantages. This website lists all the benefits.

2. Winter Cleaning

We have all heard of spring cleaning but what about winter cleaning? I, like most christmas shoppers, collected a lot of Amazon boxes. I was very happy to hear that Amazon was teaming up with Goodwill. So now cleaning up your closet has never been easier and doing a great thing for someone else is a great way to start off your New Year. For more information you can read this article. After cleaning my closet, I will be able to shop again, and for everything new I buy I will throw something away.

3. Make Me Time

Take a little time every day to do what you want to do.

I, like many throughout the year, forget that sometimes you just need a little me time. You should never give up on things you are passionate about. Some things I like to do each day for myself are go for walks, listen to music, write and take photos. Do something everyday for yourself. Or if you can't do something everyday start by doing one thing every week. Don't skip out on the me time, everyone needs it!

Read this quote! You should be making mistakes it's how we grow as individuals, need I say more. But I vow to make more mistakes this New Year. I certainly won't break this resolution.

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever."

-Neil Gaiman

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
