Some people are resolution makers others don't believe in them...Some people ring in the New Year with such joy and hope for a new start; For others, it is just another day...Either way, the New Year gives us a chance to look back on twelve months of our lives and examine them closely. In what areas do we wish to make changes? Did we have a wonderful, eventful year? Did we have a not so great year and look forward to a new one? Whatever your circumstances; January provides us with a fresh start.
Personally I have split feelings about new year resolutions. I love new beginnings and second chances especially if something truly needs to be changed. On the other hand, why do we feel the need to wait until January to make changes? Realistically, change can come at any given time. If we really want it to.
I feel if we make a huge list of resolutions, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment. Think about all the people that are signing up for gym memberships....will they still be active in March? I hope so, but if we TRULY deep down in our hearts and minds are not motivated, then we will be angry and upset with ourselves when we don't follow through. Unfortunately, I speak from experience. So, this year I decided to make goals, but they are reachable, attainable goals. It may take a year, but I am ready to make these changes. I'm not going to list my goals here, but I think the most difficult aspect for me is to prioritize my time. If I can accomplish that, then the rest will fall into place.
I hope that if you decided to go with New Year resolutions or goals that you too can make them happen. Find that inner voice, that drive deep down within and listen to it. Also, don't be so hard on yourself if you have a slip up. We are only human and it happens. Good luck to you and Happy New Year my friends!
“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”
― D. Simone
