Four days into the New Year and I already feel “behind” on all the things I said I was going to do differently or change come January 1st. Isn’t it funny how we, inadvertently, set ourselves up for failure with all our New Year expectations!?!?!
For most of us, ringing in the New Year is about starting over, doing things differently, and hoping for better outcomes. But, don’t you think that it’s unrealistic to make a date for change? From my personal experience, change comes from within and requires action of your mind EVERYDAY. A date or “new year” isn’t going to elicit much more but the added pressure to get it all right “this time.” If your mind set isn’t healthy and the WANT for change isn’t’ there, then nothing about 2013 is going to be different for you.
I propose that we all stop, take a deep breath, and look around at our lives. Discover what is right and what is working, and focus on that. Take a minute to reflect on times that brought you great pleasure and ask yourself what you were doing during that time that brought you those feelings of satisfaction or success and try and go about setting your new goals based on these premises. I believe that when we tap into that which we already posses, we will get more of what it is we want from life. May you all find or discover what it is you’re seeking.
Peace and Love,
