This is time of year when many of us think about resolving to make changes in our lives. What if we shift the way we think about change. Typical resolutions like, “I’m going to quit smoking, I’m going to lose weight, I’m going to exercise more, or I’m going to eat better” are secretly admissions of past years sins. By naming specific activities we are narrowing our life’s focus to a few ‘bad behaviors.’ Why not focus on what we really want out of life, and then make sure our choices are in line with that path. Let’s challenge ourselves to think about our upcoming resolutions as the creation of new opportunity, not as a rejection of a current lifestyle. Resolutions should be approached from a perspective of embracing a New Year with new possibilities, recognizing all that the previous year has given us, and welcoming in more.
