There’s something special in the air during this time when one year ends and another begins. It makes us feel like we can change our lives, make our dreams come true, and maybe even change the world.
The gym parking lots are full. The natural food stores start to be packed. Dreams of financial freedom are prevalent.
But some time around February, the enthusiasm wears thin, we give in to our excuses and limitations, and it’s back to business as usual.
I have fallen into this cycle before…only to dig out my resolutions some time around November/December to repledge my dedication and commitment to changing my life.
And so the cycle can repeat itself….over and over again.
In 2008, I finally put an end to this cycle. I had goals I was consistently working on, but my only New Year’s Resolution was to spend quality time with me so that I could form a better relationship with myself and evolve into a better person.
My life changed drastically that year (see the About Me page for the full story). However, once life got “good,” I got comfortable and after two years, my commitment to this resolution began to diminish.
I am revving up to recommit myself to myself. I know from experience that this is the ultimate, king and queen of resolutions.
I also have learned that wellness and balance is not somewhere you arrive, but a space you consistently work to maintain.
Once you establish this foundation in your life, everything else becomes easy to accomplish. All other goals will happen effortlessly. It’s quite magical, and I am excited to undertake this journey.
