We all start a new year with some sort of intention or even a resolution. So I’ve asked people around me about their intentions and goals for this new year. To be honest, I was expecting to hear about huge goals, but what most people really wish to, is to live more fully every day.
You know, enjoy, love, laugh and experience great moments some more.
That got me thinking. How do we do that? To live more fully. It sounds quite simple, yet many of us, myself including, still don’t know how to really go about it and apply it to our everyday life.
I’m sure, you agree that it’s tough job to change anything. It requires a lot of discomfort, acceptance of uncertainty and persistance, especially when the going gets tough, as it usually does.
That’s when I realized, we wish to change too many things at once.
We want to enjoy more, love, lose weight, wiser, more successful at once. We take way too much on our plate and fail by losing the focus.
Obviously, I’m not a champ fixing that, not even close. The truth is that, it’s something I’m still learning.
But, what I’ve learned is that one step at the time approach works great in real life.
So this year, I’m trying something new. Each month, I focus on one tiny thing I’ve wished to include in my life. During the whole January my aim has been to start each day with meditation. So that’s what I’ve done. Post coming up about my experience. Can’t wait to tell you about February.
As always, I’d like to hear from you. Join the conversation in comments.
What have you been up to in January?
Did you have any resolutions for the new year?
