It’s that time of year again—the moment we’ve painstakingly cultivated Pinterest boards about—it’s New Year’s resolution time.
Below are nine resolutions we could all follow to make our lives a little brighter in 2015, according to some of the best gifs and moments of the last year.
- Do more of what makes you happy.
We all need a spirit-boost every once in a while. Make time to do things that make you happy this year, like rewarding yourself with a post-study session dance break.
- Prove there is more than meets the eye.
As sorority women, we are constantly battling stereotypes. Make a promise to yourself and your sisters that 2015 will be the year of living ZTA values to break down those stereotypes.
- Make friends with someone you don’t know.
Go out of your way to get to know someone new. This could mean going out of your way to talk to someone in one of your classes or at work—maybe even someone in another Panhellenic sorority—or just spending more time with a new member you haven’t gotten to know very well yet. Strike up a conversation by doing something nice for them!
- Be healthy—mentally, physically and emotionally.
Lose the Grumpy Cat blues by deciding to take charge of every aspect of your health this year. We even have some resources that can help! Check out our wellness Pinterest board and our new fraternity-sponsored mental health programming, Behind Happy Faces.
- If you fall, get up and dust yourself off.
Take a note from Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet/award show appearances in 2014: Sometimes falling down can be endearing, especially if you follow it by accepting an award for something awesome.
- Try something new!
No matter what you do this year, take a trip outside your comfort zone. Travel somewhere you’ve never been before, learn a new skill or go out on a limb for the sake of fashion.
- Let go.
A list about 2014 wouldn’t be complete without a “Frozen” reference, so here it is. Follow Elsa’s example and let go of things that have held you back in the past!
- Make teamwork a priority.
When we work together, we can accomplish great things. Don’t forget, team work makes the dream work in 2015.
- You do you!
Keep chasing your dreams this year and don’t let anyone knock your style! Set tangible goals and accomplish them in your own way. It doesn’t matter how you get there, so long as you do.
