We can be hard on ourselves sometimes when it comes to making and sticking to our New Years resolutions, but truly, anything that gets us thinking about changing and growing is a positive thing. Failing is never bad as long as we try to do better the next time. Failure actually teaches us more about growth than success does. Life, like meditation, is a journey. We don’t expect to instantly be able to clear our minds and ascend to enlightenment the moment we decide to take up a practice because we know it’s a process. If you don’t reach your fitness, career or relationship goals on the first try, just bring your awareness back and try again.
Timing isn’t what’s important. The beauty of positive change is it doesn’t need to take place at the beginning of a new year or after a holiday or even on a Monday. We have the power inside us to make simple adjustments throughout the year that can deeply impact our lives over time. Expecting change to happen immediately just creates undue pressure and sets us up for disappointment. Instead, what we really need is a shift in our thinking: a decision to try to be more mindful about all of the things we do. Moving through our days keeping that at the forefront of our minds is what actually gets us on track to fulfill our goals and achieve our life’s purpose.
