By now, you probably have your New Year’s resolutions. If not, consider this unusual resolution … Be kind to yourself. Give yourself some credit. You probably have a lot on your plate. There are plenty of people out there who are more than willing to be harsh to you. You don’t have to be one of those people too.
Or like many of us, is your resolution to lose weight? Again, be kind to yourself. How about focusing on the month’s weight loss goal instead of the year? You are more likely to succeed if you try to change one goal by working on it one day at a time.
How about an even “simpler” resolution? Do you wish you had more time with your family? Quality time is crucial. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant vacation. You don’t even have to leave the house. How about a board game or other uninhibited play? You would be amazed at what 1 to 2 hours of play, every two weeks could do for your family.
If you can, share this process with your child and/or family. Your internal growth is something they can learn from and follow. Not to mention, they might offer you a great deal of support.
I hope you all enjoyed your New Year’s Eve celebration. As for my family, it was quiet; just us three. Quiet is a very rare and special treat. Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve is still amazing! Screaming the countdown – still my favorite part.
