Starting a fresh year with a list of things you don't like about yourself and want to change is negative. Shift your focus to all of your positive achievements in the last year and you may find yourself naturally building momentum and wanting to keep it up.
This season, consider that you are the Secret Santa, and what you give every day makes you fabulous not only during the holidays, but all year long. The best present is your presence and the best gift you could ever give is your authentic self.
Most human beings are comfortable sharing their strengths with the world. I invite you to also boast about your core issues. Make peace with them. Don't let them rule you but share them with loved ones.
