A motto my ninja sister likes to go by is, "love all, trust few, and paddle your own canoe."It is simple, sweet and to the point. But like many things in life, easier said than done. The concept I struggle with is to "love all". I am a very loving person, but this is something I am going to work on this year. I have many positive ideas and ways to be helpful. I just have to remember to keep my focus on the positive things I am passionate about. Seems easy enough, the catch is I sometimes get hung up on others ignorance. I am aware that I will not always have the same beliefs, opinions, or ideas as everyone else. What my sister made me realize is that I need to concentrate on the positive and keep the negative out. I should be courteous of others ideas and not always waste my positive energy by creating negative energy. Negative energy only takes you back, and this girl is moving forward.
So as far as New Years resolutions go this year I will be trying to "love all". To those people that are saying they are going to work out and eat healthy this year, DO IT! You can, take it one day at a time, no one ever said you needed to work out 5 hours a day and only eat salad. We all have things we can improve on, the only way to make progress is to get up and make it happen!
