When I focus on change in my life, I take the two or three most important items where I want to grow and break them down into smaller and manageable daily actionable tasks. From there a strategy is developed to hold myself accountable for my personal growth.
Our mind is a judging machine. I have learned over my sixty year journey to free myself from automatic judgments that arise in my mind. When reacting to your judgments, you only see your interpretation of what is there. Letting go of those judgments helps you to understand things as they are.
Do not allow your past mistakes to define your future. Loving yourself is abundant. Declutter, clean up and organize your mental and physical spaces. When you get rid of the clutter in your life, mind, and emotions then the true love, growth, and progress take place. To move forward from where we are standing, we need to see where we are. Practicing mindfulness and gratitude allows us to experience an intentional moment to see the beauty and wonder present in our lives.
Have the courage and discipline to show up at your very best in 2019. May this year bring unique opportunities and achievements into your life. Be humble, be honest, be happy, be kind, be real and be you. Live every day with a strategic purpose to get 1% better holistically every twenty-four hours. Let each of us commit to building bridges that allow us to connect with the lonely, the lost, the unloved, the needy, the forgotten, the voiceless, the hungry, the powerless, and the future. Everything you seek already lies within you. You have all the gifts to cultivate your dreams and to be a positive difference maker in 2019.
