I wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! I hope 2019 will be a healthy and good one for you. When you look back at you will be proud of the accomplishments. It doesn't matter where you are in life you are always a work in progress, do you feel it hasn't been much progress in 2018 it is time to change that. Start small, change, add, or eliminate things in you life to become a healthier person both physically and mentally. It could be cutting back on drinking or / and junk food, become more active. Maybe not letting your emotions run your life. Become clear what you expect from people. And remember almost everything worth while in life doesn't come fast and easy. Many times we need to sacrifice something short time for the benefit of a better life later, be able to do the things needed for the better future. This isn't easy at all. Most of us like to have the cake and eat it at the same time. BUT it is necessarily. Let me give you a personal example what I myself have to do. I like to carve wood and play the djembe drum. I haven't had much time for this the last year. I would like to prioritize those two things. It means I have to let something else go, temporarily or permanently. My priorities have to change. I might have to sacrifice and sell my motorcycle and become more effective about what I do with my time. .
I suggest that you sit down and write down (pen and paper) what you like to do in the next year: professionally, personally: relationships, hobbies,, health-wise: food and exercise. Then add one thing on each subject, an action how it will take you closer to what you want to accomplish, start small, or you will crash and burn before January 15.. If you do not succeed the first time, it doesn't mean you failed, no, pick your self up and keep doing it. Do NOT give up that is the key. Even if you feel you are doing microscopical progress it's progress and during a year it adds up. Good Luck and keep your spirit up!
