It’s the beginning of a new year – another fresh start. What will this year hold in store for you? Actually, a better question would be, “Have you decided what you will experience this year?”
Now, don’t get me wrong. The Rolling Stones were correct when they sang, “You can’t always get what you want.” Just because we say what we want or even put it in writing, doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. Only about 8% of the people who set New Year’s Resolutions achieve them. Should we even bother?
I believe the answer to that question is, “Yes, we should.” You see, making a DECISION, is very powerful. It’s the bridge between our thoughts and our actions. I’ve heard it said that “most people are about as happy as they decide to be. And …
Yes, I’ve decided, and you can too! This will be a very good year. I’ve already put several important goals in writing, and have decided to take the steps that should result in their achievement. I understand things will happen that are outside of my control, and I’m okay with that.
Years ago the words, “No doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should” from the Desiderata, became a permanent part of my philosophy of life. I can’t control what happens, but I can control how I respond to whatever I encounter. I made the decision to look for the good in every situation. I decided to believe that God is Good … all the time – even when what He decides might be different from what I had hoped for.
We all get to decide for ourselves. I hope you’ll join me and make the decision that
THIS WILL BE A VERY GOOD YEAR!
