What now? 6 Pointers for a Prosperous 2014

  1. 1. What Now? 6 Pointers For A Prosperous 2014 www.theHIVJournal.com Social Media
  2. 2. 1 Accept Yourself Today you are YOU, that is truer than true, there is no one in the world more YOUer than YOU! No matter what you are going through whether BIG or small remember to be yourself, be strong and stand tall. You were born beautiful and full of life, whether you are gay, straight or bisexual, African American, Hispanic or Caucasian, fat or skinny, tall or short – you are who you are. So what you may not look like everyone else… you don‟t need to all you need to do it be yourself. We all have insecurities, we just have to learn to accept them. And if there is any aspect of you that you want to change make sure you are doing it for you, not for a guy or girl do it for YOU! “I am ME and that is exactly who I want to be!”
  3. 3. 2 Be Happy We owe it to ourselves to be happy. With the drama and stress we have to put up with daily – traffic, rude co-workers and even life itself, we need to have a jovial spirit and a very positive outlook to not be consumed by life‟s negativity. No matter what 2014 throws at you, remember to smile and take things one step at a time. President Lincoln once wrote „people are usually as happy as they make their minds up to be,‟ so this year make up your mind to be the happiest you have ever been this lifetime. And yes, things will get you down, and of course there will be low days, but pick yourself up and don‟t allow anything or anyone steal your happiness. “I am responsible for my own happiness.”
  4. 4. Eat Healthy & Exercise 3 One of the most popular (and unachieved) new year‟s resolution is the pledge to lose weight and start exercising. Year after year we create unrealistic goals for the new year and eventually shy away from them when we realize it does not collaborate with our everyday life. But eating healthy and having an active lifestyle should take precedence over anything thing else. Think about it: you have to eat to survive… so why not eat healthy? For 2014 start small, when you go to the grocery store, park in the back aisle and walk inside and at least once per week turn the TV off and go for a walk around the block. Instead of having fast food for lunch, pack lunch and take it with you. This can also help you save money. Remember, one healthy decision leads to another, and the same holds true for an unhealthy one. “A healthy outside begins inside.”
  5. 5. 4 Set Achievable Goals Heights by great men reached and kept, Were not obtained by sudden flight, But, they while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night. Have you ever wondered why most people who make New Year‟s Resolutions never achieve them? Well, it‟s because most of the times the goal they set is far beyond achievable. As humans, when we accomplish what we set out to it renews our strength and confidence and encourages you to keep going. It then seems like a smarter route to create a series of achievable goals. “Accomplishing something you set out to is a sure way to boast confidence!”
  6. 6. 5 Live, Love, Laugh  Live like there is no tomorrow  Love like you have never been hurt  Laugh like you never laughed before “Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.”
  7. 7. 6 Take things one day at a time “As long as you keep walking, you will overcome whatever you are going through…”
  8. 8. What Now?       Be Happy! Accept Yourself! Start eating healthy and exercising. Come up with achievable goals. Live, Love and Laugh like there is no tomorrow. Take things one step at a time! www.theHIVJournal.com Social Media
