As resolutions can be broken, they can be restarted. The pastor at my church described the process of trying to change, improve or create a new (positive) habit in your life: If you miss a day, don’t stress out or give up, just start again. He related it to eating. If you get busy and forget to eat dinner, do you just stop eating forever? No, as soon as you get a chance, you eat again. So why this story? It’s January 10th and I had made a resolution to write more frequently in this blog. Hmm….well, just like eating, I won’t just give up on writing. Besides, my view on “New Years resolutions” is, if there’s something you want to change about yourself, you don’t have to wait until new year, just go for it. And I regularly have goals, plans, areas of improvement I want for myself so if I waited for new year, I wouldn’t know where to start.
It was a great holiday season. Christmastime is my favorite time of year. I take it all in and have a cool little set of traditions I keep as much as possible; like going to the state capital and seeing the Senate and House trees and the main outside tree.
I hope everyone’s 2018 starts out and finishes fantastically with a good portion of awesome in the middle! Remember, if you forget to eat, just start eating again.
