I don’t make New Year’s “Resolutions”. I make New Year’s “Evolutions”! I am an evolving being and consciously choose to incorporate things that contribute to my well-being in life. I have chosen two this year….
1. I will be true to myself.
I ended 2014 with some hard-knock lessons that gave me a better understanding of who I am, how I want my life to be and what is most important to me. I sacrificed much of my time and sanity last year with the noble intentions of supporting the “greater good”. I rarely saved enough of myself to step back and recharge my batteries. I wasn’t the best person I could have been because I was always running on empty. As a result, I lost precious time that should have been spent on the things I value most in life. This year, I choose to be true to myself by being mindful of how I spend my time and by giving myself as much love and support as I give to others.
2. I will live in The Now.
“The Past” is just our memory’s poor recollection of something that is already gone. Our view of The Past is always changing because it depends on how we are feeling at the time we’re recalling it.
“The Future” lives in our imagination. We imagine what The Future will look like and how we will get there but more often than not we find ourselves far away from where we expected to be wondering how we got there.
The only thing we truly own is time and that time exists solely in the moments defined by what is happening in our life right now! This year, I choose to live in The Now by staying present and fully embracing every moment it brings.
May 2015 be the beginning of the best years of your life
