Do you like New Years?
New Year’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it reminds us that we can always clear the slate and start anew. Our old unhealthy habits don’t have to follow us into the coming year. We can change. We can grow.
I wasn’t always excited about the new year. My dislike probably had something to do with my inability to complete any of my previous resolutions. While having a fresh start is invigorating, it can also be daunting. Change can be challenging. Old habits — even if they are hurting us in the long run — can be comforting in the short run.
A while ago I found a couple of my old resolutions. Though the resolutions were years apart, they were virtually the same. Finding these resolutions was a wake-up call. Clearly, I knew what I wanted, but the strategies I thought would work didn’t. I needed some help and guidance in order to live life to the fullest.
If the changes you want to make in your life seem impossible, I encourage you to try a different strategy. Maybe, like me, you need a little help and guidance to get there.
Happy New Year!
