Happy New Year! I know this is the day many of us start working on our new year’s resolutions and for at least one day are likely to succeed. But what about the 364 other days, the ones where we slip back into old patterns and forget our new year’s resolutions? What if this year was different and we actually reached many of our personal goals we set out to achieve on Jan 1st? Imagine a day that you don’t have those annoying thoughts bombarding you about what you are not doing (not getting on the treadmill, not eating enough fruits or vegetables, not saving enough money)? And what if you stop acting out those behaviors that lead you to feeling guilt and shame (e.g., eating a scoop of ice cream at 12 midnight, having the extra glass of wine at the party, speaking sarcastically to a loved one.). Wouldn’t this be fantastic!?! I really believe this is possible but it will take some work.
I am proposing that we band together to reach our goals this year. I will start by creating a blog that will connect you to information that will help you achieve your goals, inspire you to stay motivated, and hopefully add a little humor on your journey towards reaching your goals. Your only job right now is to start thinking about the personal goals you really want to reach. If you already know what they are, write them down and tomorrow we will look are our goals to make sure they are written in a way that will support your efforts, not take away from them. We will write our goals in a way that will start us off on the right foot to reaching these goals and help everyone reach them ONCEANDFORALL!
For a peek into what content is likely to appear in this blog (and for those so excited about this process that they can’t wait to get started) check out my WGN interview at http://www.wgntv.com/news/middaynews/middayfix/wgntv-midday-fix-dr-julia-rahn-i-can-flourish,0,4878555.story You will get a sneak peek into some of my goals and have five additional ideas to think about until we meet here again.
I am really looking forward to taking this journey with you.
Peace and Pears,
