The New Year is a powerful time to reflect and revise how we live. It's natural to look back and shake your head at some of the things you struggled through over the past year. As I write this, I'm in the process of selling our family home, moving children leaving the nest, breaking old patterns with my husband of 20yrs, and moving into my own place. That's a lot of change and has come with many awarenesses of what's working and what really isn't working.
I was recently asked to do a tv interview and comment on the importance of New Year's resolutions. I couldn't really deliver because in my experience, a resolution lacks the potency to carry out the endeavour. Here's what I wrote in response to that question.
This is a more energetic approach that offers less resistance and will serve you better in the long run. It allows for course correction and lessens the judgement around success and failure. For more specific or concrete goals the approach is very similar. Stay in touch with why you're doing it, what the benefits will be and what the cost of not doing it will be. Keep that photo on hand to remind you that this is an act of love for yourself. Resolve means you're all in and you're showing up no matter what. This is who you are now. You're allowed time off, you're allowed to break down and start over, but you are committed to you and creating a life you love living
