Resolutions or No Resolutions

Here we are again at the beginning of another new year.  This year I decided to upgrade how I make and most importantly keep my resolutions/goals and so far except for one it seems to be working.

I started off as usual by making my list of resolutions and then thinking to myself what do I need to do differently this year to make sure that all my resolutions or goals are achieved, hopefully, before the end of 2017.  This time I have decided it is about the journey and not so much the destination.  Meaning that I am not so much looking at the end results, but concentrating on how I am doing each day on every resolution/goal that I have made.

I am being more mindful of the people and things that I experience in my daily life.  I am enjoying the everyday seemingly simple things in life that I so often take for granted.  Usually when the year comes to an end, most times it is very difficult to know what I have done or achieved.

This year already holds new things: ideas, joys, pains, hopes and dreams.  Even if I may or may not achieve all that I have set out to do, I do know that at least I tried to be more intentional about my daily living and the quality of my relationship with others.  I know that I would have made the effort to appreciate the simpler things in life, like my sisters, family and friends; after all life is short.

What are the things in your everyday life do you need to be more aware of?

What learnings about yourself have you discovered over the last year?

Is your focus on the journey or the destination?
