So, here it is, another year, and if you’re reading this, that means you’re still alive! Let’s all count our blessings for that! I’ve been thinking lately about resolutions and how they’re always made to be such a “thing” when New Year’s rolls around. I never really got that.I figured if you wanted to do something you wouldn’t need an excuse like a particular date on the calendar to use as a reason to do it. But, alas, a lot of people do. I have to look up the origin of this tradition. I am ever so curious about it.
However, if it’s your thing, who am I to judge, as long as you follow through. Key words here people…follow through! As I’ve said in previous posts, change doesn’t have to occur, nor actually does it ever, overnight. It’s small steps you can take to achieve great things, whatever they may be for you. The important thing is to take those small steps. I do however, recommend focusing on one thing that has been gnawing at you the most. If you say I’m going to lose weight, get a new job, organize my home and stop biting my nails, I’m going to tell you right now…forget it! I’m not trying to be a Debbie downer, but the reality is, it’s not going to happen. One thing at a time my friends. Don’t try multitasking goal setting. Leave that to making dinner, doing the laundry, helping with homework…lol, well you get it.
When it comes to life changing alterations that will put you on your path of inner peace and happiness, take the time to value yourself and the importance of the work that will go into your particular goals. The changes you want to make are all attainable! Just think clearly and reasonably about what it is that you most want and that will be your first step in your quest for it. And every day make a commitment for just that day on taking your next step. If you break it down to daily steps, trust me, your goals will not fade from memory like some dream you forgot the night before. They will become your reality. And you deserve to live that way!
So here’s to one step at a time and a very Happy and Healthy New Year to you all!
