You may have started the year off with lofty goals and dreams for the new year ahead. No matter how enthusiastic we are on January 1st, things often don't work out quite as planned when it comes to Resolutions. That's to be expected and totally okay! I want to share with you some ways to help you bounce back, instead of ditching your plans and goals altogether.
1. Allow yourself to process your emotions
If you feel like you've let yourself or others down, give yourself some time to really process how you're feeling. If you're angry, sad, or frustrated, allow yourself to feel those emotions and try to understand precisely what is causing you to feel this way. Take time to think about and write down why you might be feeling so upset with yourself. Writing your feelings in a journal or self-reflect in whatever way works for you. Have you make these mistakes time and time again, or have you felt disappointed in somebody else for making a similar mistake? There might be an underlying reason for your emotions, and they're worth digging in to.
2. Talk to someone about how you're feeling
Call a friend or a loved one and tell them your situation and how you're feeling. This can be extremely therapeutic and can often leave you feeling like a huge weight is lifted off your shoulders. We all make mistakes. A loved one can remind you of this and help you realize that the situation is probably not as bad or permanent as you might think it is. Even if they don't offer any advice, it can be helpful just to tell someone what's going on.
3. Don't allow this situation to define you
We really are our own harshest critics. Nobody is perfect, I can admit to that myself. Do not let your mistakes define who you are. Try to be kinder to yourself while you process your emotions and try not to speak negatively about yourself as a person. While you might be searching for forgiveness from others, try to work on forgiving yourself as well.
4. Learn from your mistakes
The best thing you can do from any negative situation is to take a lesson from it. Learn what went wrong and try to understand why you did (or didn't do) something. This way, the same mistake doesn't have to happen again and leave you feeling so disappointed in yourself. If you learned something from it, then the situation is not all bad.
5. Allow this situation to make you a stronger and better person
If you can learn from your slips, you can grow as a person. Often the most difficult and challenging times are the ones that shape us and help us improve. It doesn't matter whether you are disappointed in yourself because of finances, relationships, work or failing at personal goals----if you can find a way to improve, you will come out better. Your situation might even help you see the world differently. Perhaps you can learn to become more compassionate or forgiving of other people in your life who make mistakes.
All of that to say, there's still plenty of time to reach your goals for 2020. If you slip off track, take a deep breath, forgive yourself, and re-adjust.
