Do you make New Year Resolutions? Personally, I choose not to… We can make changes any day of the year, so my attitude is – why wait until New Year? Having said that, the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one can be a really good time to take stock of where you are and where you want to be.
It’s a good time to look back over the past year and reflect on the lessons it gave you, and actually give thanks for those lessons which can help you grow and become stronger. What have you learned? Who or what do you want to leave behind? Who or what do you want to take with you? How would you really like your life to be?
The fact is that the choice is all yours. No-one is forcing you to carry on in the same old way. Your life is your own and only you have the power to decide what you are going to allow in your life, what baggage you are going to choose to carry with you, how you are going to allow people to treat you, or what positive changes you are intent on making.
Take some time to focus on the above, write down what you are ready to let go of and what you are ready to manifest into your life, then go ahead and make it happen. Your thoughts create your reality, so if you tell yourself that things are going to be difficult, that you can’t do something, or that you don’t deserve to be happy and fulfilled, then the chances are high that this will be your reality. Become aware of your thoughts – your powerful inner voice – and choose to take control of it and change it, rather than allowing it to take control of you. You have the power to make things happen.
So rather than just making New Year Resolutions 2014, decide to change your thoughts and change your life!
