I’m not a big fan of New Year resolutions. I am reminded of their best intent when I go to the gym in January and can’t use the treadmill because the club is so busy. By February, many of those good intentions to get back in shape have waned, and I no longer need to fight the crowds to get to the treadmill.
So New Year resolutions have never moved me. Until now. This year I want to fine-tune my outlook on life. In light of all we read in the news, the national and international struggles, the day-to-day noise, I think I could use an attitude adjustment.
I don’t want to focus on what’s not working. I want to focus on what’s good in my life and what’s going RIGHT in the world. Ever notice that wherever there are bad things happening, there are good people doing good things to make them right? That’s what I want to celebrate in the coming year.
So…I choose not to live a life guided by fear or mistrust. I choose to appreciate what is good and right in my life and in the world. And with that attitude adjustment, I will push back on life when it pushes me over. I will join all the others out there who share a determination to make life good and right.
You know what? 2016 is gonna be a great year!
