Hi my Facebook friends Happy new year. OH boy it is already the 8th Jan and the days are moving fast. I hope you managed to stay with your New Year resolutions if you did not then re-think them. Re-plan them. Start again and this time be kind to yourself. Do not set too big a task for yourself. Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? The tortoise was willing to keep going and do a little plodding one step at a time till he got to the end. The hare well he stopped and started and stopped again. And then he forgot to watch the road so when he was napping tortoise he passed old hare. That is what happens to our good intentions. We set the goal too big and then we set off at a good pace but when the hill gets too steep we stop for a rest. Then we slide and one day becomes two days then three weeks and the year has gone.
That my friend is called procrastination (To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness and to postpone or delay needlessly) I am as guilty as anyone else on this score; Hence my horror at seeing the date this day when I had a bill to pay. Yes I only notice the dates when something important happens. I dream my day away. Well to dream is fine that is how you find out what you want and what you don’t want. Then you have to put into practice that dream. Remember that film the Field of dreams? He built it and they came. So make this your motto for 2015. I build my dream and then they will see. Or rather I will see.
Yes do not wait for the first day of the year to make your resolution. Make it again today if like me you have slipped. Dream break down the dream into manageable steps and then plod one day at a time like the tortoise. Do not give yourself a bad time for failing as in the failing we often find what was wrong with the original plan. Start again and keep on starting again just like the song Pick your-self up and dust your-self off and start all over again.
Love and light Demici
