Happy New Year!
What more can I say that has not already been written about 2010 and what’s to come in 2011. Well for one thing I’m not a philosopher — that’s a good thing, believe me.
I never make resolutions for the new year. I don’t know why, but for me it seems that they can be almost impossible to keep. So why should I beat myself up because I couldn’t keep a promise.
Here’s one tip (sorry I couldn’t help it), only make promises you can keep. You’ve heard that before I’m sure.
Anyway, here’s my take on how to resolve not to make resolutions. Live each day with a smile and always think positive even when it seems to be impossible.
I have found that when things seem to be too challenging it’s good to remember there are always options. When we realize this we can usually handle the seemingly difficult.
I’m definitely not the pied piper, but I’m a mother to my grown children and I’m blessed that they are comfortable talking to me about the good, the bad, and sometimes the not so good. Though I never give advice I do share my thoughts and opinions and I always give them options. It seems to help and make the wounds heal without scars.
The options may not always be the ‘cream of the crop’ but what the options always do is to make us see the light at the end of the tunnel. It may not always be the brightest light, but it is always a light to help guide the way.
Well that’s it for my 2011 resolve not to make resolutions. All the best to you and yours for a new year filled with love, peace, health and prosperity.
