Who wants to have a great year in 2014?  I’m going to go out on a limb here and say EVERYONE!  Here is a positive ‘to-do’ list to help you make the most out of 2014!

1.  Start making your happiness a priority. -  The only person who can make you happy is you.  If you are relying on others to make you “feel” happy you will inevitably end up disappointed.  Happiness is your choice.  Remember that your needs matter and it is possible to take care of yourself while simultaneously caring about those around you.

2.  Start facing your problems head on. – When we avoid the things that are troubling us they do not go away.  Take action!  Do what you can about the situation and acknowledge the steps you have taken.  Remember that inches count and add up to miles over time!

3.  Start valuing the lessons your mistakes teach you. – If you mess up the world will not end.  Do not think of them as mistakes but as “learning moments.”  Appreciate the fact that you are growing and improving as a person. 

4.  Start being more open about how you feel. – If you are hurting take the time and space you need but be open about it.  Do not let negative feelings bottle up as they will come exploding out at some point. 

5.  Start concentrating on the things you can control. – It is a waste of your time and energy to worry about the things you can’t change.  Instead focus on the things you can control, and act on them now.

6.  Start enjoying the things you already have. – Often times we think we will be happy only when we reach a certain point in our lives.  Take some time to appreciate what you have right now and you will be on your way to having a great 2014!
