If you see something that needs changing in your life, change it. If you need a date (like some use a date to stop smoking, start exercising, etc.) to help you focus on that goal, use a date; but don't wait until the new year to start. Tomorrow (or next Monday) is just as good a date to start. If you want to change, and it's November, don't wait until January.

A new year is just as good a place to start to make your life better as any other date.

Resolutions should be made on a daily basis, as far as I'm concerned. Take stock daily and adjust your attitude, priorities, whatever, accordingly. Happy New Year!

Today I posted this in my daily distribution.
As the year ends we all start making new resolutions……
But how many of us spend any effort doing clean up for sins/mistakes (big or small) committed all through the year?

Is asking for forgivness part of your daily routine? I guess not!!!

Where to start? Ask God, your heaven's team, your lover or spouse, colleagues, kids, the family pet family friends, your car that won't work,grocery store clerk, the cranky stove or computer……

In fact EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE you have hurt,cursed at, taken advangtage of or belittled …all qualify.

So lets end the year .....and start the new one taking stock of our own conduct in thought and actions, words and gestures, how we choose to see or label others....and how much we decide to open our hearts in service to others.

It is a wonderful way to ensure success in the next year....with love, peace and harmony...@work and at home.

Thanks for reading....Linda

Anything that prompts us to take stock and reflect on our priorities and what we could improve is healthy, as long as we avoid taking it to extremes. So, I don't think New Years resolutions are a bad thing, but we should do this more often.
