The New Year’s Cycle Continues
Another year begins and old resolutions become new resolutions again. Every year at this time, we find ourselves at a crossroads. We evaluate our decisions made and the future ahead. We establish new goals and look forward to the changes that will take place over the course of the next year. We ponder, we reflect, we ponder some more. We come to the realization that acting on our goals is the best way to accomplish what we want for the year.
This year, my list is short:
Live everyday as if was the last, stop complaining and start loving and living, be grateful and be at peace!
I expect this simple motto to take me thru the rest of this and every future year. At this point in my life, that’s the only thing I can wish for, it is the only thing I can do. I’d been tired, and complaining drags me down even more. Gratefulness calms down the anxiety of life.
At the beginning of every year I promise to be a better self, physically, mentally and emotionally. This year I choose to be grateful. I’ll speak less and listen more. I promise to keep calm, breath deep, and to think more and react less.
The best way to accomplish this year’s resolutions is to take one day at a time. To live for today, because tomorrow may never get here. Choosing to write a better story every day, keeping in mind that, although tomorrow may never come, there is always the hope that it will and I can start with a clean slate every morning.
This year I choose to be happy, I choose to be grateful, I chose to be at peace.
