Strong hope is a much greater stimulant of life than any single realized joy could be.
~ Friederich Nietzsche
To begin each year in the hopes that we will be happier, richer, or more secure is very human indeed. However, a saner approach might be to reflect on the gifts that were granted to us throughout last year. Each year, I try to write a list of gratitudes. Instead of focusing on the things yet given or acheived, which frustrates me and causes me to beat myself up; I prefer to look at things in terms of how much I have grown and learned. Let’s get our new year &/or life started on a upbeat note.
Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, I will make a list of everything and every person that has come into my life this year…all the successes, gifts, and things learned. Breathe in the good.
