Embracing the big picture without getting caught up the details
By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times
Are you feelin’ it?
I am. Wanna know why? Because THIS time I am NOT going to make any resolutions. (I’m actually twitching as I type). But, seriously…EVERY year I make a laundry list of ways to “improve” myself (which, inevitably include a diet and exercise regime designed for *Olympic caliber athletes).
*news flash: I am not an Olympic caliber athlete
I saw this picture on Pinterest (via LostCreekAcres) and had to share because it sums things up nicely:
So, instead of creating a checklist of unattainable goals, I’ve decided to make resolutions more reflective of the “big picture.” Mature, right?
Here is MY “Top 5”:
- Enjoy All the Little Things
- Take Risks
- Be Grateful
- Make An Impact
- Bite My Tongue (sometimes)
I do love the fresh start that the New Year brings. The possibility for growth seems limitless!
I also think it’s important to ask two critical, very personal questions:
- What was the BEST thing that happened this year?
- What was the WORST thing? And, more importantly, what did I learn from the experience?
Sorry to get all “Stuart Smalley” on you, but, intriguing…right?
I would love to hear YOUR resolutions for 2013! Add them to the Comments Section below!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
