Well it’s the 28th December and we’re right in the middle of the festive celebrations of Christmas and the entry into the new year 2012.
So how is it going for you? Was it a great holiday because you were with your loved ones, or disappointing because you never got that fabulous pressie you were hoping for? Maybe you just wanted to use the time to take a break from the stress of your work, or even just enjoy looking around the sales.
Regardless, it’s done now, as Christmas day has now passed! So if you’ve any resentments, disappointments or irritations lurking around, that have been caused because of Christmas, then please let them go now! As there’s absolutely no point in carrying this type of negative energy into 2012, as unless you are prepared to find a way to resolve it, you will make life harder for yourself.
I don’t know about you, but my mind has been filled with things I need to work on for the future. And whilst it would be usual to categorise these intentions as ‘New Year Resolutions’, I’m having to be really careful I don’t. As like many other people, my new year resolutions last approximately one week before they are broken or forgotten about!
However, I have decided that my life and my health can be improved, so whilst I’m resisting the impulse to announce I’m doing this or that from January 1st, because it would correct a problem, I’m taking this opportunity to see the bigger picture of how my habits have created the life I have now. Not easy viewing, I can tell you!! As it’s obvious how I, myself, have been the creator of many of my life problems! Drat! Why can’t life be simpler and easier?
So, as taking ownership and accepting self-responsibility is a great place to start any time, regardless of whether it’s a new year, that’s what I’m aiming to do. But not for just a week, but at all times. As when I start treating myself and my life with more consideration, then I should start to feel better, shouldn’t I?
During the middle of 2011 I had a channelled message saying…….
‘Your health is the most important thing in your life. Without it there is no life. Go back to the drawing board and design a way of living that supports good health. Only then will you feel like you’re living the life you want!’
I thought I’d been making positive changes to my health, yet here I am at the end of 2011 with the same problems of feeling unfit, being overweight, feeling unmotivated, lacking and disappointed with who I am, etc. etc.! Just like other years, other resolutions, other so-called life-changing decisions!
So now, instead of just thinking I’m making proper improvements to my life, I need to somehow ensure I’m physically doing all I can for me, to assist me as I cope with life, and to help me feel healthier, fitter and happier. As then I might get to see some positive results emerging, that let me know that what I’m doing is actually working to create what I need! Then I think I will feel like I am managing my life, rather than feeling like I’m powerlessly riding in a carriage on a roller-coaster.
This feels like a huge challenge, as it actually means changing the ingrained habits of a lifetime! And although I’ve spent many years changing who I am, I wonder whether if I’ve not been able to fully reconstruct my destructive habits before, will I be able to do it now! Time will tell eh!
Anyway, this blog is meant to be short. As then I might be inclined to blog a little more often. So all that’s left for me to say is …..Happy new year to you all, and good luck in all you do, to improve your own existence!
