I love New Year’s Resolutions. I am inspired by the feeling of renewal and another chance to succeed with my goals and aspirations. But this year will be different because I understand that some bad habits aren’t broken overnight. I may not get instant gratification on January 1st. It’s all in the resolve that I build to not break commitments to myself – but even this will take time. The secret is to renew your goals every day.
So, knowing I am human and not always motivated, I like to think of every evening as New Year’s Eve. I am going to wake up every morning with the feeling of excitement and hope. I get a chance every day to meet my goals, even if I didn’t succeed the day before. I am going to be easy and gentle with myself. I will chuckle at setbacks knowing that I am going to get up the next day and start all over again. What I am ultimately committed to is creating habits that make me feel good.
And of course I will utilize my favorite words: Everything takes practice. I have to be patient with myself as I build new skills and habits. I will persevere – even when I have setbacks, I will stay focused and I will persist until I am successful and my unhealthy habits dissolve.
I wish everyone a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year filled with love, joy and abundance!
