Happy New Year Y’all!!! Can you believe it is 2019?

I am so grateful for a new year and new opportunities, however, remembering to write 2019 will be another story. It usually takes me to mid-February to get it right when writing the date. Another thing that gives me pains in the new year is all the resolutions I make and fail to maintain. So this year, NO RESOLUTIONS!!! This year I will plan for the upcoming 24 hours. Why plan vs. resolution?

What is a resolution anyway??? Resolution (noun) a firm decision to do or not to do something.

What is a plan??? Plan (noun) a proposal for doing or achieving something.

Splitting hairs?  I don’t think so. For example, if it is a firm decision – and something does not go as I resolved it to happen – then I find that I ultimately ditch the idea all together. Why? Because if I can’t do it perfect I don’t want to do it at all. Hey, I never said I was sane! In taking a realistic look at my life, I find that if I plan – then I can be flexible – and if it doesn’t work the way I planned, I am more open/willing to look for a different way to accomplish my task. Sooo for 2019 I will plan!

I plan to begin each day with gratitude! I plan to take a few minutes to center myself and prep mentally for the day! And if life happens and my plan is not perfectly executed… no beating myself up… I’ll just start from the moment I realize that I have not begun the day the way I had hoped and make the remainder of the day better.

Regardless of your way of beginning the new year – resolutions vs. plans – I wish you all the best that 2019 has to offer.

Happy New Year!
