I love looking back at all the cool and fun things I did in the previous year! While I don't focus on the past, it is a great time to realize that you more then likely accomplished way more then you believed you would. The new year is a time that many people set new goals and resolutions. I have grown to know that goals can't be static and that for them to be really effective they need to nearly have a life of their own. Be fluid, moving and changing constantly. I see them as guidelines or a plan to follow. They are really guidelines or a plan to follow measure and adjust. There have been many times i have set goals then after a couple months realized I was going in a totally different direction.
I have never been the type to set RESOLUTIONS. I know they work for some people, but most people in my opinion set theirselves up not to succeed because the goal they set is so overarching there is no way they can keep the pace . Most people set such drastic changes in behavior for their goals and resolutions when the honey moon period wears off and they haven't lost more then the initial 5 pounds of water weight for example they go back to their old habits.
I can't say that I believe in Failure at this point in my life. I would rather call it experience, part of my learning process or becoming on the journey and path GOD has given me, and I have decided to follow. Granted many many times the path is crooked and does not lead where I intended for it to go, but the only failure is if I decide not to move forward consciously and quite. However with that said, not all "quitting" is bad. Ceasing to continue to do something because it doesn't serve you is not quitting. That is smart and something we all need to have the grace to do. Not every idea is "The One" or made for every person. Not every business is going to succeed, but you must take action initially because many times the act of obedience to move forward does lead you to "The One" .
I would like to encourage you regardless if you set goals, resolutions or make plans to do so in a loving space that allows you to grow and become all that you can be this year! Fall in love with your self all over again. Embrace your uniqueness and individuality and most of all live you life Authentically as you. There will never be another you! You are a one of a kind individual miracle created with gifts and abilities that no one else has. Make this year the year that YOU get to KNOW your Own Greatness!!!
God Bless You! Nancy
