Year after year, for most of my life, I would set resolutions for the new year, ways I will change, things I will start doing. These were typically things I never wanted to do, I was not consistent at, and usually failed at.
I found that setting these resolutions were just another way of beating myself up, keeping myself a failure. ¬† I say setting a resolution of ACCEPTANCE. Acceptance of ALL PARTS OF MYSELF. Radical acceptance of:
- my treadmill ignoring self,
- my non-waking ¬†up early self,
- my always arriving late self.
Once I began accepting these things I considered what was wrong with me, GUESS WHAT!? I changed.
Have a precious beginning of this New Year. As dear friends of mine say, “enjoy this trip around the sun!”
