Some days are just easier than others to stay focused on goals that we set for ourselves. No matter how enthused, determined or committed we may be to achieving new goals, it is easy to fall off the New Year’s Resolution wagon.
As we stray from the path, doubt and discouragement sets in. Old habits begin to creep back because they are more comfortable than the new ‘healthier’ habits we seek.
When I realized my thoughts were creating doubts as opposed to supporting new goals, I stopped for a couple days and regrouped. I made a list of everything positive about my new journey; what I’ve learned, implemented, experienced including the growth and rewards that came with it. Have I reached my goals? Not yet. But I’m further ahead in so many ways by just realizing the effort and strength it takes to get there.
Instead of getting discouraged and giving up, I am committed to getting up and continuing on my journey. I plan to stay on track by heeding my own advice one bee “expression” at a time. What seems appropriate today may be different tomorrow. In any case, today is a new day and I’m embracing a bee hopeful attitude.
Wishing you continued success creating and keeping your goals on track.
