How are your New Year’s Resolutions going?
For some people, they may be going strong; but for other people, you may have started to lose momentum. What happens when you lose momentum?
Speaking from my life, I know there have been times that I have set great goals. This could be exercising, eating healthy and taking time for myself to re-energize me and fill my cup. All great goals… so why couldn’t I stick with them?
When I would let life get in the way, I would set my goals aside. In time it became easier to fall back into the old routine or habits instead of trying to create new ones. Once I would miss a day or two of exercising, because of kid schedules or something coming up at work, I would just drop the whole goal. Chalk it up to ‘I tried…’
