The trick to “New Year’s Resolutions” is doing them backwards

Happy New Year!!!

I love starting a fresh, new year!

Did you make any new year’s resolutions?

I used to make a long list…
eat healthy,
be more diligent with my religious studies,
be more patient with my kids,
etc.

You know this list, right?

All my resolutions were wonderful, worthy goals, but I always ended up feeling overwhelmed.

So now I do it differently.

I work backwards.

I ask myself,
Who do I want to become this year?
Who do I want to be on December 31, 2019?

And then I spend time thinking about and getting to know this new version of myself.

-What would she be thinking about?
-How would she handle the difficulties I’m currently facing?
-How would she spend her time?
-What would be important to her?
-How would she be feeling?
-How would she take care of her body?
-What would she do to facilitate healing?

And so on.

She turns into my mentor, and I become more and more like her every day by thinking, feeling, and acting as she would.

So rather than making yourself a big long “to-do” list for 2019, focus on who you want to “become”.

Start at the end and work backwards.

Sending love and healing to you in 2019!
