Happy New Year
Is anyone making any New Year's resolutions? I haven't thought about it too much, since I tend to break every one I make, lol!
However, just because you break your resolutions, doesn't mean you have failed. In fact, every day you wake up you have another opportunity to make any change you choose. So what if you eat a big piece of cheesecake when you said you were dieting? Tomorrow, you simply try again.
I like this gentle approach to change. If we don't forgive ourselves when we fall down, who will?
This is a good time to reflect on 2010. What I did was take a sheet of paper, write down all the wonderful things that have happened, and all the things I am grateful for. It was not a perfect year, as I did not exercise regularly, nor did I cut out sugar. However, tomorrow morning is a fresh start, and another chance to make the changes that will improve my life.
How about you?
