This might seem like a strange thing to do, however, I believe it is important. Many of us make promises, resolutions and lists of things we want to do every January 1st.
It is hard to believe that we are approaching the middle of the year already. The most common complaint I hear is, “Where has this year gone?” It seems as if we begin the New Year and the next thing we know, it is summer. Then, before we have a chance to think about it, we are getting ready for the fall and winter holidays.
So, back to my question of checking in with yourself. Just how are you doing with all the things you were going to do this year? Lose that extra five pounds? Go back to school to finish your degree? Clean out your garage and have a garage sale?
It is very easy to get caught up in the day-to-day minutia of life. We live in a very busy and demanding world. Work, school, children, family, friends and oh yes, sleep, tend to keep us from focusing on what we thought seemed so important a mere 6 months ago.
So take some time and think about the things you wanted to do for yourself. For others. In case you didn’t know this, you are allowed to make resolutions to do better and be better, even though a new year won’t be starting for another 6 months.
Something to think about.
