Call them “secrets” or common sense…either way, after a night of insomnia on New Year’s Eve, the only night in the year when is appropriate to be awake all night, I had an AHA MOMENT!!!
Yes, less IS more!!!
We make unrealistic promises to ourselves and then we are disappointed!
How about trying this easy change:
Instead of JUMPING, expecting to be able to jump for the rest of our lives and never to fall… or fail, let’s TAKE STEPS.
Instead of leaps, we could walk first and “secret” number TWO, call it common sense too, walk in places we like!
To say it less metaphorically, let’s CHOOSE activities and tools we like in order to reach our goals. For instance, if you like swimming but not walking in the woods, go swimming. If you like painting, but not playing the piano, go paint. There are many ways which acheive the same goals. Choose the most appropriate for your needs and personality type.
Let’s take the top resolutions people make at New Year’s:
Loose weight, exercise more, quit smoking …etc.
Well… let’s face it…if we haven’t done it already,(whatever that is) and waited for the New Year, it is probably something which requires effort and may be, just may be, it doesn’t come naturally to us?
If what I suggested above holds true, write ONE RESOLUTION and three activities you like as steps to accomplish your goal and SHARE with me privately or publicly in a comment.
One of my few 2016 Resolutions is to use the gifts God gave me and the knowledge I aquired through education and experience, to support and advocate for those who feel they could benefit.
