We get 365 fresh starts a year. But there is one BIG fresh start – New Year’s Resolutions! After you’ve said goodbye to 2017, it’s time to set your resolutions for 2018!
Fresh starts are such a blessing to humanity. Neither every day nor every year goes as we plan… so it’s nice to start again. Clean slate. Blank canvas. And we can do whatever we want with it! We can paint whatever masterpiece we like with 2018.
But, I started out last year with this resolution:
I want this year to be the year that I get well. I’ve been sick for such a long time, with varying degrees of chronic fatigue syndrome for five years, two months and counting.
I know that I don’t have much control over this illness, but I do know that I have to set goals and continue to strive for them in order to keep my mind and my soul healthy. My body might give out, but my optimism and my desire to get better should not.
It seemed like a far-fetched goal at the time, and my year was not easy because of chronic invisible illness.
In many ways, 2017 was one of the hardest years of my life… because I just felt hopeless. I felt that I would never get better.
But I did. And 2017 became one of the most rewarding years of my life as well as one of the hardest.
I’m excited to share with you in the next week how that happened.
Whether YOU are sick, lonely, and depressed, OR happy, content, and healthy, I encourage you to set your goals. We all need to be better human beings.
So figure out how you can be better in your body this year. This post may help.
And think about how you can improve your mind and your thoughts. Try this post.
Most importantly, spend time on your soul. I hope this one helps.
At the beginning of 2018, we have no idea what will happen the rest of the year. Much of it will be out of our control. But, we can control our attitude toward life and today is a great day to start out positive.
I’d love to hear some of your New Year’s Resolutions! So check out our Facebook page and leave me a comment!
