Welcome to 2018!

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

I hope you have had a relaxing, re-energising break and are excited about the year ahead.

Traditionally, this is the time of the year for revising our priorities and resetting our goals – or to use the old-fashioned phrase, for making New Years’ Resolutions. While the phrase may be ‘old hat’, the idea is sound – that we take a break and re-prioritise.

Normally, New Years’ resolutions cover things like doing more exercise, eating better, spending more quality time and so on – and traditionally they don’t last past the second week of February.
But like most things, there are ways to make resolutions stick. The trick is to find what works for YOU.

I’ve found that the best “resolution keeping tool” is to continually monitor my attitude, and to remind myself, when necessary, that ‘It’s up to me”

 


 
When we blame others for our problems, shortcomings or disappointments we cancel any chance of personal growth. To work, a resolution has to be practised and reaffirmed regularly, so please try this with me: Let’s remind ourselves daily that what happens to us – how happy healthy, strong and successful we are, is up to US alone. Yes, things outside our control occur all the time, but the attitude we take and the choices we make, determine what happens next.

Let’s keep at least one New Years’ Resolution this year. Let’s say to ourselves every day: It’s up to me.

Happy 2018.

Kim.
