New Year’s Resolution | Be Here, Not There. 


Now that the New Year has rolled around we are eager to begin our “new life” with a different attitude. I’ve always written down New Year’s resolution or at least things I’d like to accomplish or start. I don’t take it too seriously which is most likely why I fail on completing the list in it’s entirety.

According to wikipedia: A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior.

Gyms are filled to capacity this time of year but dwindle as the weeks pass. There are so many habits we want to change in our lives but seem to fail often at making that change.

Face it, we’re not resolute in our resolutions.

There are many things I would like to accomplish but usually my emotions get the best out of me. A lot of what I do or not do are based on how I may be feeling at the moment.

There’s a lot I’d like to change in myself and although I may not cross off everything off my list, I cherish the fact that even though I fail I get back and try again. This change is not brought on by not liking who I am, it’s brought on by my need to always grow.

Although I still wrote a New Year’s Resolution, there is one single one thing I’d like it to be about.

There are a lot of people choosing single words to live by throughout the new year, mine is a state of mind in which I’d like to be.

We scroll through countless photos on Instagram, liking and commenting on other people’s life moments. Sometimes when we’re sitting around our own family moments, missing out.

So this year, when you find yourself on social media. Stop to think a bit and be here, not there.

I just wish to be more aware of my surroundings and be present.

  1. What a touching post! You know, on the New Year’s eve I started recalling my best moments of 2016. I realized that almost every single day was amazing because I was around my family, we were traveling, we were growing up together… I just want to wish you more amazing moments in 2017. I like your blog. Some of your posts appeal to my heart as I am also a Mom 🙂

  2. I’m loving the thought behind this. I don’t do resolutions but I like the idea of choosing a phrase to go by.

  3. I couldn’t agree more! Being present with the people you love is so important especially when you are with your children. They do grow really fast and sometimes, small moments are the the most important ones. 🙂

  4. Be here, not there. Yes! In every sense of the phrase, and I do a much better job of everything I’m doing when I focus only on one “here” at a time. I can save the social media for when my kids and my husband are all busy.
