New Year Resolutions

Saturday, December 29, 2012

I realise from past experience how all my new year resolutions fell flat by the end of January. So this year I'm not promising anything. I'd like to have have faith in myself above all else having observed myself closely over the past few weeks. Reason for this is I've noticed myself getting drawn to do the bidding of others, some of which is fine and but lots of which isn't so fine. To have integrity is something I followed to the t so when I said I was going to do something I carried it out & didn't weaken half way and give up. I've noticed this trait in others lately & it appears that any efforts on their parts to improve have been given up because something sounds like too much hard work or poses some sort of threat to the existence. I find this so frustrating in others and when I deign to offer advice I feel it's a complete waste of my energy. Perhaps I too should be focussing on me. 2012 has been a great year but I have given up on my plans so many times it's not funny but at least I can at make amends. Perhaps resolving to do something positive for myself is better than anything else.

    I am resolving to listen to my instincts and not assume that everybody else knows better than me what is good for me. I am resolving to work on my self confidence, so that I can serenely plough my own furrow, and to keep on enjoying my exercise, regardless of ridicule, and being called a' fitness freak'!

I wish!

So we're kind of looking for the same things. I'll be in Sussex for 1/1/13, but perhaps we can get a walk together in the New Year. emoticon

    You can make it and focusing on yourself might be the very thing you need right now. I am not an advocate of selfishness but rather of SELFING - meaning taking care of YOUR needs so you will then have the strength and energy left to do for others too. Focusing on YOUR plans is not a bad thing, it is a HEALTHY thing to do.
