Usually I take the time at the end of every December to write up a blog that gears me (and my readers) up for the year to come. I did not make any resolutions last year, and truth be told, I never do. Rather, I embarked on a journey into self discovery and converted to a more compassionate lifestyle including my diet and behavior.
In 2012, I learned to:
Toss away the storybook notions I thought dictated how my life should be. Instead, I embrace the uniqueness of how beautiful things have become no matter how tattered their appearance.
Accept the beauty of the hiccups and bumps I encountered in the road. I wear my battle scars proudly!
Go through life knowing things are going exactly how they destined to be. There is a purpose for all I experience.
Let the journey continue and happy 2013 to all of you!
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?
