Down with Resolutions; Up with Flying Pigs!

Do you make New Year's resolutions? Do you keep them?

I switched to making a list of what I would love to have happen in the new year. Since a brand new decade begins on January 1, 2020 it seems especially apt to pay some attention to what we want to welcome in with it.

Try this; write I Welcome in 2020 at the top of your page. Then write down all of the things and experiences you would like to have come into your life.
Some pointers
  • Don't be shy, no need to be reasonable
  • Do not bother about how it can happen
  • Be ready to accept miracles, outrageous, improbable outcomes like when pigs fly!

Is there something you struggle with? This is an excellent time to compare how much time and energy you spend on what you want to happen versus how much you devote to what do not want to happen. That includes things that have already happened you are still upset about. Time to change the balance?

Though I thought I knew better, I recently shocked myself when I saw how much energy I expended about having asthma. I wondered what to do, was ticked off every time I wheezed. I devoted a good part of every day to worrying and dreading. I lost touch with my desire to breathe freely. I forgot that these things come and go and that I want this one to go! Now I spend a few moments in the morning and at night (and whenever I catch myself focused on what I don't want) just plain wanting healthy breathing. I know it's possible. I see no reason to believe it cannot happen. Then I usually feel excited. I don't know what will happen but I'm sure to improve my chances.

I'd love to know what you want this year. If you share you list with us, it will inspire others.
Happy New Year! Many Blessings!
