2nd Annual Live Like You Give A Damn- New Year’s Resolution Project

Dr. Michelle Peris

This is a project that I have been manifesting for the last 3 years and I am really excited about it! I want to live my best life now and motivate others to do the same.  I think we are meant to achieve great things and yet we get caught up in the stresses of daily living and eventually become distracted from achieving our best and end up in the same place we once were.  This is how each year when it comes time to making new resolutions they are oddly similar to the ones we made last year and yet we don’t spend much time asking ourselves why we failed and how we can make the next year different.  I am believe that this year can be different and I am out to show you (and myself) how! This can be applied at any point in our lives, this does not have to begin at the beginning of a calendar year. Every second of our life is an opportunity to change and live life differently, every second can be a new beginning.

I have made a 2013 resolution list and I have spilt it into a few categories, daily tasks and monthly/ yearly goals and expected outcomes.  Expected outcomes are usually what we call resolutions like “I want to lose weight”, but typically we stop there.  We don’t think about HOW we can accomplish it, we just feel good about the decision of setting a resolution.  By doing the daily tasks I will accomplish my goals for the year.  This is how I will be successful.  I will be providing tools, advice and lots of information and health tips to help you also be successful.  So I encourage you to make yourself tasks and goals to fully reap the rewards of the LIVE LIKE YOU GIVE A DAMN project.

Please come on this journey with me of HUGE transformational change and I hope you enjoy my blogs and find them helpful for your success.  I am excited to reflect back on the year and see how much can accomplished when you set attainable goals and hold yourself accountable.

It should be understood that I am like most of you, I have had trouble committing to simple goals like dietary changes and I am a Naturopathic Doctor so you can imagine how disappointed I have felt in myself.  But I think I have set myself up for failure, I talk a big talk (its very easy to make goals, I can think of thousands in my head right now; its quite another to implement them) without having prepared myself to be successful.  I believe I am meant to LEAD BY EXAMPLE and that is what I am prepared to do with my blog.  Organizing my goals and clearly outlining what it is that I want to accomplish this year will allow me to help others as I also believe it will be motivating for you.

This will be a constantly evolving project only to make things more interesting.  But I vow to you and most importantly myself, that I will do the very best that I can each and every day.  I know what it is to just endure life and now I want to know what it is like to be fully present and in LOVE with my life.

I trust by investing in the LIVE LIKE YOU GIVE A DAMN project that you will be so much more excited and happy about life and grow leaps in self LOVE.  And who wouldn’t want that?

I believe that we are all worthy of a purposeful life and feeling totally in love with who we are as people.  So make the decision to love who you are and commit to making 2013 a transformational year! Make a list like mine and we can take this journey together.

Stay tuned for my list and feel free to make them your own or use them to inspire your own resolutions.  Yes, we’re several weeks into January so we’re a little tardy, but don’t let that negative chatter get the best of you. Today is just as good as any day, if not better,  to start anew.  And if you had already selected a few resolutions then use this program to help you become successful.  Happy 2013!
