I’ve chatted ad nauseum about how I dont do New Year’s resolutions.
They frazzle me (I dont thrive on self-imposed life pressure).
They cause me to rebel (Im a grownup that way. It’s the same reason why, when
Ren Man a trainer shouts EIGHT MORE REPS! I quit after 3…).
They, in my experience, set me up for failure.
I instead choose to think we’re gifted with the chance to make new and ‘better’ choices each morning.
Hell, each MOMENT we encounter a crossroads we’re given the opportunity to choose the path we most want for ourselves.
As a result, tomorrow is just plain ole Sunday around here.
No this year is going to be different because_____.
Sure, we may take the time to revisit our goals & mission statements (as individuals and as a family), but the revisiting is no more powerful or pivotal than it will be six months from now when we do the same.
I read a quote in a magazine recently which expressed perfectly why tomorrow is no different for me than any other day:*
Everyday is the first day of what’s left of your life.
(powerful stuff huh? the “what’s left” gets this 42.5 year old every time)
So have a happy & healthy today.
Have an exciting & energetic tomorrow.
And remember: we’re never as far from our resolutions, goals, plans, or creating the life we want than our very.next.choice.
See you in 2012!
