15 Thoughts for the New Year
A New Year is here, and many of us hope to employ newer methods to enhance our lives. So, in honor of 2015, here are fifteen thoughts to consider.
- We control our perceptions, no matter what the circumstances. We can face harder times with a positive attitude and easier times with a negative one: it’s up to us.
- There’s a discernible difference between selfishness and ensuring our needs are met. Actually, when we fail to properly care for ourselves, it becomes more difficult to help others.
- Motion is beneficial to the body, mind, and soul. So, if you are physically able, take the staircase instead of elevator, walk instead of drive, and regularly exercise.
- Pick up the classic you have always wanted to read yet somehow missed.
- Time continues whether we fret about it or not. Thus, instead of counting the days, make them count.
- Love is the answer, even if we forget the question.
- It’s exciting to set goals and even more thrilling to stick with them. Nonetheless, if you miss Tuesday’s workout routine, that’s okay.
- Try to cut people a reasonable amount of slack for their shortcomings (and hopefully they will return the favor).
- Learn a new language, especially if it is something you have always wanted to do. You certainly do not have to have to be overly proficient, just knowing you can carry on a conversation may be all that is necessary to feel rewarded.
- Set healthy objectives but reserve the right to occasionally deviate.
- Refrain from hasty judgment. Most people have something valuable to add, even when their experiences are rather different from ours.
- Regularly give thanks; appreciation does wonders for the soul.
- Pardon others, even when it is difficult. It is your load that lightens.
- We can usually diminish a wrong if we fess up we messed up.
- We’ve all heard the saying,” You can’t take it with you.” You can’t, so now’s the time to enjoy!
A New Year? It holds a plethora of promise!
