Hello all: Happy New Year!
Attached to a new year is the reflection of what happened in the old year. Often we find ourselves asking ourselves,” Did I do what I said I was going to do? Which of the New Year’s resolutions promised from the beginning of the year did I keep? What were my New Year’s resolutions anyway?”
If all this is still swirling in your mind, take heart. I understand your feelings. I understand this feeling of making resolutions and not keeping resolutions so well that I do not make New Year’s resolutions anymore. I’ve come to see that too often, I won’t be keeping them by the end of the first quarter of the year. I get frustrated at myself and it just wastes my energy which I need for actually getting something done…like typing in a blog entry here. 🙂
Therefore, make no long list of New Year’s resolutions that you may not remember by January’s end.
I encourage you instead to think of just one thing that would really improve your life this year. Take that one thought, think about it over and over again. Next plan how to make the idea go from ‘just an idea’ to reality, and then work out a small section of your plan at least on a weekly basis.
See how good you’ll feel this year and presumably even at the start of next year.
Share your progress!
