Happy New Year! Resolve Not to Resolve!

20120101-212556.jpg

When I see patients for nutrition assessment and education one of the main objectives of the session involves setting realistic goals that are manageable and very specific.

This new year aim for setting the same objective. Stop making ridiculous goals that are unattainable and are doomed to make you feel like a failure by February.

Make this the year you resolve not to resolve.

Make this the year that you focus on being the kind of human being that lives and breaths every single present moment. Be the person that figures out that karma is not a vengeful force but rather a fabulous way of paying it forward with every single act of kindness whether it be holding open the door for someone to paying for someone’s lunch without them knowing it. Every moment counts and your actions reach more than you think.

Make this the year that you turn it around and stop wallowing in misfortune and learning to learn from it and make it an opportunity to turn it around. Does wallowing ever get you anywhere?

Happy new year everyone!

  1. I smiled when I read your statement about seeing karma as a great way to pay it forward, rather than a vengeful force. It’s true–we reap what we sow, so why not sow kindness and compassion?

    I stopped setting out-of-reach goals long ago. Instead, I’ve learned that it is best to take one step at a time, acknowledge each step forward and cut yourself some slack for a step backward here and there.

    Thank you for an encouraging post!
