Its that time of year again when I reflect back on the past years events and review my New Years Resolutions. I have a file of my Resolutions on my computer dating back to 2010, a lot has changed since then, but underneath it all is the yearning for more self love and acceptance and the betterment of my goals.
This year I've decided to do something different with my resolutions. Instead of keeping a file that I look at every few months, I'm going to print it off, decorate the page and post my list in a location that I will frequently look at.
My problem in not completing every goal on my list isn’t because I can't do it, or its unachievable, its because I forgot! When something isn't an obvious choice, we forgot to consider it. I wanted to learn to sew this year, but did I? No, because I had no reminder of it. That is what will be different this year, that I'll have reminders and encouragements to peruse more of my goals.
In 2014 I had a list of 24 goals to achieve, I'm happy to report that I am completed 11 of those goals. That may not seem like a good success percentage, but the fact is I am satisfied with my efforts. Of course, I wish I had done a little more but some of these goals became irrelevant, unnecessary or certain circumstance didn't allow for it to happen. I am happy to accept that I am human and I know I've developed personally and professionally even when sometimes it didn’t feel like the glowing evaluation I wanted.
Some of the dreams I had for myself this year, just weren’t meant to be. Life takes it own course and guided me down an avenue I never thought I would peruse, but I am glad for it.
You have to allow for spontaneity, adventure, surprises and setbacks.
In his book Be Happy, Dr. Robert Holden says “No amount of self-improvement can make up for any lack of self-acceptance.”
Beautifully said and absolutely true. So that is why this year, my focus is on self-acceptance and self-love.
I hope that the New Year brings wonderful surprises, excitement, joy, love and healing for you all.
Peace, Love and Healing
