We are on the threshold of another year. The door to 2015 is wide open and I can’t help but wonder what it will bring. When I looked up images to use for this post I found one that was a door opening on blue skies. I almost used it as we all want blue skies. But then I realized that through a year many doors will open so this one seemed to be a better choice.
The eve of a new year is a time to reflect on the past year. Did you make resolutions? If so did you accomplish them? I don’t make resolutions but I do make lists. For just about everything including annual goals. So what’s the difference between goals and resolutions? And, we all know this, I just need to remind myself from time to time.
If there is a specific achievement it’s a goal.
• lose 25lbs is a goal.
• Maintain a healthy weight is a resolution
The key is to know which life changes are attainable goals and which ones are permanent resolutions. Weight for me is more than losing just a set number of lbs. Instead I would like to modify my diet to eat healthy and improve my stamina with exercise. But I’ve found that I need to have both goals and resolutions in my life.
As I write this a question comes to mind. Do I accomplish all of annual goals? No, in fact I could capitalize that NO. But I accomplish some of them and if I didn’t make that list I no doubt wouldn’t do as well as I do. And, for sure I wouldn’t be able to look back on the checked off ones with the sense of accomplishment.
So the door is open and 2015 a step away. May your dreams come true and they will because like a trip, the fun is in the journey as much as the destination. So all you have to do is dream the dreams you want to live.
Happy New Year. ☺
