With the New Year coming I am sure you are probably thinking about what the year ahead will bring and about some possible resolutions. Every year I come up with various lists of resolutions and plans that I intend to carry out and every year without fail – come February I have forgotten my resolutions or have just failed to stick to them. A whole year seems like a long time to not drink coffee or to get up early or god forbid give up television.
The reason I love resolutions is because I crave daily practises that will keep me on track and make my life better – since I seem to stick to most of my resolutions for January – I figure I have enough discipline to keep it up for a month. So this is my plan for 2011 – to pick one resolution each month and give it total devotion knowing that if I truly hate it – in 30 days time it will all be over. I am hoping that the benefits of each resolution will be so astounding that I will bring more of the practise into my life for the rest of year. At the very least I will have an impressive list of resolutions that I have tried and hopefully achieved by end of the year!
I have brainstormed a whole juicy list – and plan to unfold them here at FertileLife monthly so you can have a little surprise and a giggle. The list seems to fall into 2 categories – things I want to stop doing and things I want to do on a daily basis. Although most are simple – they are by no means easy. Some of them I should be able to work into my life pretty smoothly and others will push me to my limits.
Step 1 will be revealed on January 1st 2011 so be sure to stop by the blog while you are recovering from your hangover. To make this journey more exciting and fun I would love recruits for my 12 Step Happiness Program, you can use my resolutions or come up with your own each month and check in with your progress – nothing like an audience to keep you honest.
If you would like to join me on my 12 step adventure leave a comment or if that has you quaking in your boots send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or just tell me what your resolutions for the year are, I would love to hear them.
