10 New Year’s Resolutions for LETTING GO & MOVING ON
Resolutions are made in anticipation of a new calendar year with new beginnings. As I was reflecting on what I’d like to personally change in the new year, Letting Go and Moving On, kept coming up for me.
I’d like to share my thoughts with you and hope that they may encourage others to make changes in their lives that are important to their personal well being and happiness.
Resolutions are not wishes. They are personal goals. Things you would like to accomplish during the coming year.

10 New Year’s Resolutions for Letting Go and Moving On
1. Let go of NEGATIVITY FROM THE PAST
There is nothing you can do about what happened in the past. But you can learn from the past and move on. The only way to begin a new chapter in your life is to stop re-reading the previous chapter.
2. Let go of TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE ELSE BEFORE YOURSELF
It’s okay to be helpful and do nice things for others but not in spite of properly taking care of yourself. It is important to find a healthy balance.
3. Let go of GRUDGES
Learn to forgive appropriately. Holding a grudge, feeling angry and hateful for too long can manifest into other issues such as physical illnesses. Learning to forgive and move on can be extremely freeing and beneficial to your future health and happiness.
4. Let go of RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE THAT ARE NOT GOOD FOR YOU
We all have choices of who we share our life with. Let go of people who always seem to drain you -- those that bring too much negativity into your life. Choose relationships wisely and fill your life with people that make you feel good.
5. Let go of TRYING TO FIX EVERYONE
Loving and caring about someone so much to a point that you are trying to constantly fix them is not healthy. It is important to let go of things that are not in our control. We can only change ourselves.
6. Let go of GUILT FROM PAST MISTAKES
Everyone makes mistakes. What’s important is that we learn from them and not make the same mistakes again. Some mistakes are huge. It may take time to let go of the guilt. Forgiving yourself is essential to moving on.
7. Let go of JEALOUSY
Jealousy will get you nowhere. Count your own blessings. Make a list of all the things that you have to be thankful for.
8. Let go of TRYING TO BE A PERFECTIONIST
No one is perfect. Be true to yourself without wasting time trying to prove anything to others.
9. Let go of BLAMING OTHERS
Take responsibility for your own life. Do not give the power away to someone else by blaming them.
10. Let go of WORRY
Make conscious choices whether or not something is worth worrying about. Do not give too much energy to worrying about things that really don’t matter.
Best Wishes For A Happy New Year!
Smile often! Life is too short to hold on to things that are hurtful and unproductive. Letting go and moving on may be exactly what you need to continue a fulfilling, happy life.
I know that's what I need! And that's my New Year's resolution . . .
