As we approach the New Year, many of us start working on their New Year resolutions. And that’s why I thought it would be a good idea to share with you these 30 promises you should make to yourself before the new year. Promises that will most probably make you feel a lot more excited about reinventing yourself and changing your life for the better.

Here they are:

1. “I promise myself to laugh as if nobody’s watching, and love as if I’ve never been hurt before.”

2. “I promise myself to live as if I were to die tomorrow, and learn as if I were to live forever.”

3. “I promise myself to love myself as much as I want others to love me.”

4. “I promise myself to expect less from others but more and more from myself.”

5. “I promise myself to die to the past every night so that I could be born again each morning.”

6. “I promise myself to let go of the heavy burden of my past. To turn my wounds into wisdom, and my difficulties into opportunities.”

7. “I promise myself to forgive so that I can heal, and let go so that I can grow.”

8. “I promise myself to learn from every experience and every interactions life sends my way.”

9. “I promise myself to allow life’s many challenges to make me better, not bitter.”

10. “I promise myself to never speak from a place of hate, jealousy, anger, or insecurity. And to always evaluate my words before I let them leave my lips.”

11. “I promise myself to complain less, and appreciate life a little more.”

12. “I promise myself to always look for the good in people. To treat everyone with love, kindness, compassion and appreciation and never speak badly of anyone.”

13. “I promise myself to let go of all the drama in my life, and only hold on to those things that bring me joy.”

14. “I promise myself to create a sense of purpose and bring meaning into my everyday life. And no matter how many times I fall or fail, I promise myself to never give up on myself, my dreams and life.”

15. “I promise myself to live my life in a way that inspires others and always bring out the best in them.”

16. “I promise myself to feel more and think less. To trust more, and doubt less. To fear less, and hope more.”

17. “I promise myself to surround myself with people who make me hungry for life, touch my heart, and nurture my soul.”

18. “I promise myself to walk away from everything that no longer serves me, grows me, or makes me happy.”

19. “I promise myself to spend more time connecting with who I truly am underneath it all, and less time chasing the love and approval of those around me.”

20. “I promise myself to honor my authenticity and show the world who I truly am.”

21. “I promise myself to let go of any bad habits I might be holding on to, and walk away from all those things that hold me back in life.”

22. “I promise myself to let go of all blame and take full responsibility for my own life.”

23. “I promise myself to allow those I care for to be perfectly themselves without trying to twist them to fit my own image. Loving them for who they are and not for what I want them to be.

24. “I promise myself to to give more of my time to those who are special in my life, and show them how much they really mean to me.”

25. “I promise myself to clothe myself with love and wear this love wherever I go.”

26. “I promise myself to cleanse my inner vision until I see nothing but light, my own and of those around me.”

27. “I promise myself to care more about being kind than I do about being right all the time.”

28. “I promise myself to trust my inner voice and intuition more than I trust the loud voice of those around me.”

29. “I promise myself to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong.”

30. “I promise myself to allow the world know me as I am, not as it thinks I should be.”

P.S. Feel free to print this out and stick it on your fridge or somewhere you can easily see it. You know what they say, out of sight, out of mind.
