"IS A CHOICE!" HA HA!! I FIND THAT FUNNY.....[sorry]
So often, change is forced upon us, that CHANGE becomes a nasty word...change in a job, change in our government (taxes, laws etc)...you know where I'm going with this.
But change can be positive....ESPECIALLY when WE CHOOSE IT! RESOLUTIONS can be so burdensome, especially that NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION. Don't let it be! Most people would rather do anything except change. THIS IS NORMAL HUMAN BEHAVIOR! When we identify a problem area, we become creative.
We might analyze it. Worry about it. Read about it. Talk about it. Rationalize it. Cry about it. And pray about it. All before we decide to do something about it!
Don't be discouraged if you struggle to bridge the gap between desiring to change your behavior and doing it.
Lasting change takes time and work, as you bridge from the old to the new.
Keep a journal to track your progress from "old" thinking and behavior to "new" thinking and behavior throughout the year....AFTER ALL, YOU DO HAVE A YEAR TO MEET THAT RESOLUTION!!!!
Document your desires, goals, plans.
Follow-through can help you on the road to lasting behavior.
Remember to see where G-d's helping hand came into play [if this is something that is part of your life.]
Most of all....GO EASY ON YOURSELF!!! Change takes time....if it is going to last. And every so often, take a look back.
MAKE SURE TO LOOK WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN, WHERE YOU ARE, AND WHERE YOU ARE GOING. REJOICE!!! SQUISHY HUGS.
