We're a week in and I'm quite comfy skipping resolutions that will never be accomplished, writing a manifesto that will be forgotten by April and coming up with witty goal-oriented quips to keep the basics at the forefront of my mind. 2013 will be simple, I have a few a few priorities: ♦ Make love a priority :-)
♦ Not be so quick to judge ♦ Fit exercise in based on activities I enjoy
♦ Create new memories
♦ Refrain from depleting resources on unfruitful endeavors
♦ Acknowledge and feed my core desires ♦ Focus on the great things that happen and not let any unpleasant moment change my course Semantics? Maybe, but to be honest, many of these stem from past broken resolutions so I consider them second chances :-). All the best to you in the year to come!
“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
"According to A Course in Miracles, there are only two basic emotions:
one is fear, the other is love. You may fear the disapproval of others.
Take that risk and you'll discover that you receive more approval when
you don't seek it than when you do. You may fear the unknown. Take that
risk as well. Wander in there, asking yourself, "What is the worst thing
that can happen if this doesn't work out?" The truth is that you will
just move beyond it. You're not going to starve to death or be tortured
if it doesn't work out...Fear knocked at the door. Love answered and no
one was there." ~ Wayne Dyer, "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace"
