A New You for the New Year!

“If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” 2013-Top-10-Web-Sites-for-New-Year-ResolutionThomas Jefferson

As a new year rolls in many will set “resolutions” for the upcoming year.  Some will involve weight loss; career changes, financial planning, and the list could go on and on…

Resolution isn’t the only thing needed to create a new way of living.  You can resolve to change habits and adjust attitude however; if you continue to live your life as you have, you will continue to get what you have gotten. In life, everything is in continuous motion and therefore constantly changing. From day-to-day and sometimes minute to minute things can change. The key is in altering your reaction to change, and be willing to take risks.

Viewing change as something that will always be, instead of something you are fighting against, can lead to opportunities to live into a new way of being both inwardly and outwardly.

Questions to Consider:

  • How have I been reacting to the flow of changes in my life?
  • What is my usual pattern of reaction to change?
  • How does my reaction affect those around me (family, friends, husband, and kids)?
  • How does my reaction to change affect my overall health?
  • What can I do differently that will create a new way of being?

Take time this New Year to address reactions that diminish your capacity to make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you will make for a healthier and more power-filled year and life.

Happy New Year!
