..... RESOLUTIONS ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
Oy Gavoy...here we go again. Typically I want to lose weight, but I just did that so now I have to think of something else. Any suggestions? Oh, I just heard about 100! Yikes... Where do I start? Today's card says it all for me. I want to "reach for the stars!"
For me, that means a New Year's resolution to MAKE WISE CHOICES...[wisdom & experience combined.] I'm hopeful!! Do you ever find yourself saying "yes" when really, the answer should or even yet needs to be "no!" I find myself in that situation LOTS and GUILT is the big factor here! It is just way too easy to feel Major Guilt when that 2 letter word [NO] exits from the lips so out comes the dreaded YES [when we know it needs to be a NO] instead.
Well, I have a great book for working on this! It's called FACING SHAME by Merle A. Fossum. It sounds like a VERY heavy topic and an even heavier book, but once you break the cover of the book...there lies the crux of the BLAME/SHAME/GAME, also known as GUILT EXTRA-ORDINAIRE!!! And, let me tell you [though I'm not sure how I'd really know this given I am Jewish] but I'm SURE you don't have to be Jewish to feel GUILT!!! And this book tells us that saying NO is absolutely essential for a healthy soul! I'm up for that...
So, I'm going to REACH HIGH and DEEP INTO MY SOUL and learn that "NO" IS A VALID WORD. Yes, at 53 years old...this dog is going to learn a new trick! This is my New Year's Resolution for 2010. SQUISHY HUGS.
