Sometimes when I say to myself that I wish I would have done something differently in hindsight. I stop and think to myself that as long as I woke up breathing that morning God has always given me time for a second, third, or fourth chance to get it right. Never give up on a dream!
This year my New Year's Resolution is to look back on 2011 a year from now and realize I wouldn't have done anything differently. Hold yourself accountable for everything you do and live in a way you wouldn't want to change.
God and prayer really help with this one! :)
Embrace Change, Even If It's Uncomfortable At First
Getting used to doing things differently, like changing cooking and eating habits and working out (even just fitting a workout in to my day) can make me bristle at times. It's not what I'm "used to". But when I start feeling like this, I ask myself, "Well, how was that old way of life working for you? You have to change habits to expect different results." It sounds so simplistic, and it is, but sometimes that little reminder is what I need to motivate myself to make healthy choices.
