Sabotage! New Year’s Resolutions

It’s a clear, cold evening between Christmas and New Years’, and I’m sitting in front of a roaring fire, a cup of hot coco or a glass of wine next to me. In my lap is my journal and I’m holding my favorite pen with the blue-black ink. This is it! Time to reflect on the past year and time to set some resolutions for the New Year.

I write it all down and I’m feeling great! I have this amazing list of goals and ideas that will make this year the best ever!

During the first week of the January, I am still excited about what I am going to accomplish and who I’m going to become. I can’t wait to get started, but I can’t this week. I’m still recovering from the last 2 weeks.

The second week of January. I am now ready to take action. “Let’s do this!” I prepare to jump into action, and the voices start. “You should lose a few pounds before starting that yoga class.” “You’re too old to change careers.” “You can’t function without 2 cups of coffee in the morning and what about the headache you’ll get the day after you stop? You don’t want that.” “You don’t have the time …” “You don’t know enough . . .” “That’s going to be really hard.” “Maybe in a few years you’ll have something to contribute.”

These thoughts fill my head. They are loud and now I begin to believe them and before I even get started, I stop. I stop going after the things that I want or making the changes that I need to create the life that I want to live and become the person that I want to be. I instead stop dead in my tracks and settle for this me and this life. Maybe I’ll try again later. Next year.

Is this where you are? Are you about to scrap the new and improved 2017 model of you for that old 2012 model you’ve been holding on to? Are you sabotaging your New Year's Resolutions? Again?

Time to stop this insanity! You already know how much better your life will be when you go after those resolutions. That’s why you set them in the first place.

Today is the day to take back control of your life and become the creator of your tomorrow. That’s the way it’s supposed to be.
