Two Choices That Can Make Next Year Be Your Best Yet

Towards the end of the year, we often get a moment of reflection. After the holidays a new year rolls around, and it is the perfect time for a fresh start. The end of a year is time to look back on the past year and think about all that might have been achieved. You might be looking back and thinking about what hasn’t been achieved either. For many people, the new year can be a little upsetting because of the latter. They might think of the things that didn’t happen for them or the things that they missed. But things can turnaround. There are plenty of things that we can do to make sure that next year we won’t have the same regrets. The best part? It only requires two choices. Here are the two choices you need to make and how they can help you to have the best year of your life next year.

Gratitude
Many studies around the world have shown the some of the happiest and successful people in life, are the ones that have an attitude of gratitude. Being positive and thankful for all you have is so important. It can affect all aspects of your life. Having an attitude of gratitude is a choice, though. It is hard for anyone to just be naturally happy or grateful for everything in their life. But being able to be positive in whatever situation you are presented with, is a choice. You have to choose to maintain a positive attitude, not giving up is important.

Look at the people around you. Do you know people that are so happy and grateful for all they have? We all know people that are happy in their work because it means that have a job. We all know people that take each day as it comes and embraces it. They appreciate their health and like to help others. They like to work and don’t feel any kind of entitlement. How much nicer is it to be around people like that? On the flip side, we all know a few ‘Debbie Downers,’ right? The people that just suck the energy out of the room and the ones that blame everyone else for their circumstances. The people that chose to be a victim all of the time and resent having to work or help others aren't the best people to be around. So it goes to show that you can have similar circumstances, but you can choose to look at the circumstances differently. When you choose positivity and gratitude, it will make your life so much better and more fulfilling.

Need to Learn

When we embrace learning, in whatever form, then it means our life will be so much more rich. It will mean that failure isn’t the end, but something that we can learn from. It also means that you will improve your life. If you learn at every opportunity and work hard, you will have much more options in life and are more likely to succeed. Choosing to have a need to learn means you appreciate the world more and it will make such a difference to you in the coming year.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
