Don’t Bail Out!
It’s that time again … if we made a New Year’s Resolution, statistically we have bailed on it! Since I knew that the odds were not in my favor, I didn’t make any resolutions!!
That doesn’t mean I haven’t resolved to make some changes in my life. In fact, the opposite is true. But removing the stress of a New Year’s Resolution has helped.
Life is often filled with difficulties we don’t see coming. It seems a bit cliche, but those difficulties can really be viewed as threats or opportunities. And when you are faced with several at once, it can be an opportunity to see what really matters. That has been the driving force behind my “resolutions”.
I want to be kind – no matter the circumstances!
I want to be grateful – and I want to DO gratitude.
The more we are exposed to something, the easier it becomes to think about. The more we have thought about something, the easier it is to think about!
So I am going to expose myself to the things that I want to do – kindness and gratitude – more! I am making a card for my bathroom mirror, my car and my office so I can think about it more. And the more I think about it, the easier it will become to do!
I encourage you to write down those things you resolve to do, post them where you can see them regularly, and see what happens! You will think more and do more!!
