The New Year is officially here! By now you are probably well into your resolutions…
FIVE Ways to Succeed with YOUR New Years Resolutions (or Intentions)!
ONE: Begin with Gratitude. Begin every day, every challenge, every conscious moment with gratitude. We each have so much to be grateful for, and from a place of gratitude, our focus stays within our heart, consistent with our truth, and allows us to stay true to our path.
TWO: Take it ONE DAY at a time. Do you want a better body weight? Trying to quit smoking or drinking? Do you desire better or more connected relationships?
FOUR: BE KIND TO YOURSELF! Don’t berate yourself, beat yourself up, or judge yourself for your actions. We are who we choose to be in any given present moment. Don’t obsess about the past – simply focus on the moment at hand. We are ALL dealing with challenges in life in various ways. Understand and accept that life is a process, and where you are is PERFECT.
FIVE: Have Fun and Express your Greatest Sense of Happiness. Don’t make yourself miserable over your intentions or resolutions, or you will never achieve them. Find a away to make them fun. Do you want to exercise more? Try something new – dance, volleyball, dodge-ball, biking, ice skating, etc. As they say – all roads lead to Rome – so pick the one that makes you happy. There are MANY WAYS to achieve your goals. Get support, and try to make the process as enjoyable as possible.
Remember, we all face challenges in life, but it is how we respond to the challenges we face that determines the quality of our existence. We are not our challenges – we are WHO we choose to be in any and every waking moment. Be strong, be courageous, be fun, and enjoy this precious life.
Much love and many blessings,
