I am enjoying the first parts of this new year but then again I always look forward to a new one. I look at each new year as having such possibilities especially when I just finished a painful year. I am not one to stay up to ring it in, in fact I never have been one to be able to do that but I do enjoy waking up in the morning knowing its a fresh new year.
I have my quiet time and reflect on the past year then pray over what I need to let go so I do not bring it with me to the new year and that’s about it, no new years resolution for me. I know they say its good to do but for me each new day I have a resolution.
The definition of resolution is “to resolve to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life.”
I choose to make a resolution daily for me it is not as overwhelming and because of that I will end up making life changes. If I choose daily to live a mindfulness life I will live simply and so much happier. I saw a great pin on Pinterest that serves as a perfect reminder of this. I saved it, wrote it down and thought to share it incase you would like to as well.
I guess perhaps if you are one that loves the new year resolution then how about take each day as it comes to work on what you should work on so you will be a better person. To live a mindful way of life and see if you are happier this time next year.
