Another new year is upon us. Creeping in right around the corner. As the old adage goes, “Out with the old and in with the new.” This is a time when most people vow to make the upcoming year better than the last. How many actually do that? Do you actually make new year resolutions? What are they? Are they realistic? Do you really want to get rid of the old and bring in new?
If you’re at all like me, you will find time to reflect on what was good the past year, what was not so good, what you want to keep and what on earth do you want to change? Not everything in your life needs to change. Maybe you love your job, but it could use an enhancement. Maybe your relationship has gone stale and needs a little more seasoning. Perhaps you just want to maintain your positive attributes, but need to do away with a few less desirable qualities? Whatever the change is that you seek, make a plan, set short term goals for yourself,goals that are realistically attainable.
I find the new year a time to re-evaluate things. Step back, have some introspection and ask yourself not only what you would like to change, but what you would like to keep. Above all else, have self love, faith and belief. These three ingredients will help you on whatever path you chose. Even if your resolution is to work out more or get in better shape, make a plan, use your three ingredients and get it done! Set those attainable goals and then go get it!
Take a moment and place your hand over your chest. What do you feel? You should feel the one blessing you should be most grateful for…your heartbeat. As long as your heart is beating, as long as you have a dream, desires and goals, anything is possible. This year before you throw out the old and bring in the new, take time for yourself, give thanks for the positives, re-evaluate the negatives and come up with a well balanced resolution that fits you. Happy New Year everyone. to all of you reading this blog, please know you are a blessing to me. I appreciate you and wish you all the best, now and always! Peace
