I think we put too much unrealistic pressure on ourselves with the start of a new year. I suppose it is part of the human makeup to look at a new year as an opportunity to “start over”. Problem is, in my opinion, that we can’t ever really “start over”. What we’ve done and where we’ve been and the people who influenced us – be it good or bad – those things will always be part of us. It makes us who we are.
For the umpteenth time, we had a discussion the other day about “what if I had done this or that”, “what if I made a different choice”, etc etc. The conclusion we come to every single time is that, in hindsight I wouldn’t have done it different at all. I might have chosen a different reaction, knowing what I know now, but those events and people are all pivotal to making us who we are. Without those events and people, we would never be able to get to a point where we know exactly what we do or do not what, what we will or will not tolerate in our lives and who the dream stealers are in our lives.
So for 2019, I have no major “resolutions” (I tend to think they are silly anyhow as you are just setting yourself up for disappointment 99% of the time), but instead I choose to focus on whatever brings me inner peace. Every choice, every situation, every person – decide if it is bringing peace or discord to your life. By doing the little things on the 2019 list, I will achieve this.
As long as your heart and mind is focused on the right thing, you will move in the right direction
May 2019 be your best year yet. May you achieve and accomplish what you set out to do. May your days be filled with love and joy and peace. May you grow and become who you were designed to be.
Blessings and love xxx
