"New Years resolutions..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

"Guest-blogger Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst N.Y. and has worked in the
 ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years..." Today she talks about  the traditions
 of  New Year resolutions...Happy New Year! Enjoy...  ;D)


                                           New Year’s resolutions

I don’t really know when the idea of a new year resolution came to pass but it seems to be a tradition that many of us still make every year.  Usually it is about losing weight or getting a new job or becoming a better person.  These notions usually last for maybe the first month of the year and then we are back to our old selves.  

It seems that the bigger picture here is that one assumes that we are generally unhappy with ourselves and feel the need for change.  Why not just make this resolutions thing an ongoing way to live our lives.  When we step on the scale and it is slowly rising, cut back on the food intake.  If we find ourselves unsatisfied with our employment situation, don’t wait until the first of the year…make a change for the present.  If you feel you could be a better person to yourself and others, start today.

  Every day should be lived as though it were the first of the year; don’t wait, make a change for the better today. We are given only one life to live, make the most of it and make it mean something for yourself and for others.

Instead of resolutions, I like to write goals about intersting things to do. A year later, I read the list to see how successful I was. I usually find I can cross off a few of the items, but even more amazingly as I review my year, I realize I accomplished feats I never even thought to put on the list!
