Resolutions are a waste of the paper they're written on if you aren't willing to change your habits. And, as we all know, changing your habits is much easier said than done. So much so that many of us have completely forgotten our resolutions before it's socially acceptable to wear open-toed shoes. We make resolutions in the blissful state of vacation, where everything seems possible and all our dreams are before us. And then work, school and life get in the way.
If you are determined to remove yourself from the cycle of setting goals and then not following through, here are some quotes to keep you on track and encourage you to be a better you in 2014. Whether you are wanting to be more creative, be kinder, or be a better friend, stay encouraged.
One of my favorite quotes is "Before you speak, ask yourself: is it true, is it kind, is it necessary, & does it improve upon silence?" I think this is especially appropriate with the increase of people who are posting and texting out of anger or without thinking about how their comments will affect others.
