Why New Years Resolutions Suck!!
You have 2 choices in life
– to live the life you were born to live
– live the life you were conditioned to live!!
The greatest source of pain in life is NOT living your Soul’s purpose.
Sometimes we need new eyes or vision to see clearer as to how we really want to be living!
2017 is going to be the year of truth and growth.
Lets not waste our time making the same New year’s resolutions as all the previous year.
Why do I say that?
These are the common resolutions people make each year
Lose Weight and Get Fit
Learn Something New
Eat Healthier and Diet
Get Out of Debt and Save Money
Spend More Time with Family
Travel to New Places
Be Less Stressed
AND the most broken ones.
Do any of these look familiar??
Sometimes all we see or focus on is what we have to give up, get through or the pain of change.
As I write this I am sitting in a quaint, little roadside cafe with organic gardens around, sunlight filtering through, beautiful music softly playing, fresh food available and open, nice people around – oh and I am wearing flip flops too!
I have learned this nurtures my Soul big time!!
I became honest with myself and what I truly desired!
What is the definition of insanity?
Keep doing the same things over and over yet expecting different results! And I know that – I’ve been there many times!
I stopped doing NY’s resolutions years ago. I started doing thing daily, weekly, monthly that in a years time I could look back,reflect and say holy shit – good job Jodi!!! Look at how far you’ve come, look at where you were and where you are now!
It’s those little things, those little steps / choices that we make daily that over time can hugely shift our lives – it does not have to be the all or nothing on NY’s!
Look at gym memberships as an example – the first week in January the gym is crowded – you will wait for machines, classes will be jammed pack full and my March back to the same old.
Stop jumping in with the all or nothing mentality!
Remember – it’s YOUR life – each moment is a choice point – what are you choosing?
Is your foundation of yourself and your life solid and strong or not?
Stay tuned for Part 2 with some great questions to get you thinking about How Do You Want to be Living YOUR Life!!
Until then, have a fantastic New Years no matter what you are doing and prepare for 2017 to be a pivotal year!!
