New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions
Okay, time for those New Year’s resolutions.  If you’re like me your list is written on a scroll.  The problem with these lists is that they point out what we feel is WRONG or LACKING and what we want to CHANGE about ourselves.
Trust me, once I get started, I can find a whole lot of things wrong with me.  I end up beating myself up!
I think we should change the rules in 2008.  Instead of writing about those things we want to change, how about we list what we’re doing RIGHT!  Just think what a list like that is going to do to that little voice in your head that finds one reason after another to criticize you. 
I know that, despite my flaws, I can find SOMETHING really good about myself.  Something I don’t want to change.  I’m going to concentrate on that in 2008 instead of going on a fault-finding mission.
Really, can you think of a better way to start a brand new year than giving yourself a big hug for all the great things you do?

    Way to go! Give yourself a big hug from me…….throw all those negative thoughts and feelings out the door and only let the good ones in all year!

    Great Idea, Hughes! Start with the positive and ignore the mental critic!
