Welcome to 2011!
Are you one of those folks who made a solemn New Year’s Resolution that this is the year that you will lose 10 pounds, start working out or learn French?
How long has this been on your list? And what’s your pattern?
If you are like many people, you devote yourself to this new activity for the month of January and then, a month later, that life-changing resolution has fallen by the wayside. Often, these new goal are “shoulds” or are motivated by fear rather than things that you genuinely want. Another reason is that you may not have cleaned up your house enough to let in new habits. Think about all the things that are sucking the energy out of you and do not leave you with enough time or energy to devote to your authentic self. You may not even have the energy to contemplate your authentic self. So instead of making a lofty New Year’s Resolution, maybe what you need to do is to declutter and get rid of that negative energy.
