It’s that time of year when we are all challenged to make resolutions. For me, making resolutions requires me to focus on what I don’t like about myself or my life. That seems like a crappy way to start 2019. Instead, I’ve decided to reverse that process and make a resolution of the things in my life I don’t want to change.
I Resolve NOT to Change ….
Wow! The above list only took me five minutes to compile. Imagine if I spent more time focusing on what’s right instead of what’s wrong – that’s my goal for 2019. That’s a resolution I can make!
Did you notice that my simple list has 17 items?
Of course, there are things I’d like to change or improve. There are things I’d like to start or stop or achieve. This list is less than 17. So, there are more things that WORK than don’t work! YIPPEE!
But for today, I’m going to focus only on what’s right instead of what’s wrong!
Before you beat yourself up with what needs to change, take the time to WRITE DOWN what’s right. You do many things well. You have many great relationships. You have fun and rewarding activities. Your body is perfect (seriously, make a WRITTEN note about what’s right with your body).
If you must find all the things you want to change and RESOLVE to make changes, go for it. Next to that list, write the list of what does workand write it in bright, bold letters! Hang THAT on the kitchen cabinet.
Please … Please take a picture of your bright, bold YIPPEE list! Send it to me!
Happy New Year! Whether I make any changes at all, I’m perfect as I am and the list above proves it!
I wanted to share with you some of the people & things that have helped me get where I am today:
In April 2012 I had a mental breakdown. The real thing. I have about 36 hours that I don’t remember....
