We have a blank page again to start new adventures. What fun. I haven't made any resolutions yet. I just hope this will be a better year than 2015, although last year did have some nice moments in it.
Let's face it, most of the resolutions we make are broken before the month of January is over. What is called for is being more thoughtful and realistic about the goals we set for ourselves. As we all know, life gets in the way of many things as the days go by.
This year, I'm taking my time to think this over. I think the usual items on the list, losing weight, eating healthier and exercising more are hard to keep because we need to be resolved to change our habits. That isn't an easy thing to do, but it can be done. I'm happy with myself in those areas anyway because I changed my habits long time ago where weight, diet and exercise are concerned.
This year I think my goals will be smaller and more attainable. When I reach them I can make more, even if it isn't New Years. Remember, you can do this too and may be happier with yourself if you take baby steps. There's nothing at all wrong with that. As we look to the future, it's time to get serious with ourselves about the things important to us. What do we really really want to accomplish? If you're yearning for it, the resolution will be easier to keep.
Think about that as you make your list. Until next time...
