Number 8, finding humour in resolutions.

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

A Cape Breton writer (Lesley Crewe) offers her take on New Year's resolutions and I couldn't agree more. She suggests that for most of us our resolve to lose weight, join the gym , quit smoking, etc. will fly right out the window after the third major winter storm hits our region. Instead she suggests small actions; compliment a store cashier, park within the painted lines, feed the birds, don't call your kids when something is wrong with your computer, order something on a menu you have never had before, stop cursing and fund your next vacation from your swear jar, buy yourself some flowers. All good resolutions that bring a smile to your face and hopefully to others as well. Be happy and make others happy too. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Well said! The thing about what she's suggesting is that positivity generates momentum in every area of life, so I think the more one is invested in small encouragements, the more one is invested in life worth living, and the changes take on a life of their own.

    ...and personally, I'd swear a lot less, if people would just park STRAIGHT within the yellow lines, LOL.
    (I swear everyone here has forgotten how to drive this winter)

    Small positive actions we can do right now are more powerful than big goals we never start working on.
