A few weeks ago, we launched #MyWorthyPromise, a campaign to help us all be the best version of ourselves this new year. We believe that New Year’s resolutions often set us up for failure. When you write a list of resolutions you’re actually setting unrealistically high expectations for yourself. They are often so hard to live up to that you’ll forget about them before the winter snow starts melting.
We believe a promise, instead, is the best way to guide you through the year and become the best you ever. Why? When you make yourself a promise, rather than imposing a firm decision on yourself, you’re creating a bond of trust and confidence in yourself that comes from authentic desire and motivation to feel better, rather than judgment.
Our readers have shared with us on Twitter their heartwarming and inspiring promises. Need some motivation to start the year? Read ahead:
It’s the little things
The key to happiness is to understand that it lives in the everyday moments. Enjoying your daily blessings will make your life more pleasant, and these ladies know it:

Exhale the past, inhale the future
Health is everything. But the path to a healthy living can be tricky sometimes. The road to wellbeing doesn’t always move in a straight line. But with positivity and self-confidence, you can create a lifestyle that will bring out the best of you.

Be your best friend, not your best enemy
A life without self-sabotage is a lighter, happier life. Like Diane Von Furstenberg once said, “you’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.” These ladies and their promises really have it right:
