It's Time.

I'm not a big fan of resolutions, only because they are temporary, and changing your lifestyle is a permanent solution.

But, they do help to structure us, and give us an opportunity to re-evaluate where we are, where we want to go, and what we are doing.  So here goes:

What do you want for yourself in the New Year?  What do you want to start fresh with?  What do you need or want to improve?

Start with a list of those items.  Take an old fashioned sheet of paper, and write those questions at the top.  It'll look something like this:
I want                     Start Over              Things to Improve
to eat better            exercise                      my attitude

You fill in the blanks...it's your list!  I've just put an idea in your head about what might be going wrong, but maybe for you it's your job, your relationships or your health. Then below that, write this:

In order to get there, I need to do the following:
  • Obtain a plan for a better diet
  • Check in with a class, or a trainer to plan my exercise
  • Explore online meditation to improve my state of being

Again, I'm just jotting some ideas down...maybe these aren't yours, but perhaps something here resonates.  Don't waste this opportunity to begin anew, start fresh, re-evaluate.

It's time.
