New Year’s Resolutions or ???

Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions for 2018?  Or do you even make New Year’s Resolutions?

Several years ago I read a book – The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte – that changed my whole approach to New Year’s Resolutions.  Instead of figuring out some things you’d like to do for the year, first figure out how you want to feel and go from there.

For instance, I want to experience more joy.  So I plan to do more things that bring me joy.  Not just happiness, but real joy!  Next  I need to think about what brings me joy.  Thinking outside the box will bring even more opportunities.

I have discovered that volunteering at our local Care Home brings me great joy.  Seeing the smiles on the people’s faces, watching their faces totally light up, brings such joy to my heart and soul.  I will definitely continue to do this.

Spending time with our children and grandchildren also brings me great pleasure and much joy.  I will definitely leave time open to be able to do this often.

It also brings me great joy to share what wisdom I have gained through my life to empower others to live more fully and easily with peace and calm within.  This will take some looking outside the box for opportunities that I haven’t thought of yet.

I am so excited for 2018.  I hope you are too!
