I Resolve…

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.                                    Colossians 3:15

The year 2022 is slipping away, giving way to 2023. This time of year, many of us give thought to resolutions. Those resolutions are well-intentioned, and are probably good things for us to do in the coming year.

Just this quick reminder. I tell my clients that changes should be incremental and manageable, as well as practical and measurable. In other words, don’t promise yourself the moon for the coming year. Change one little thing. It is better, for example, to attain the goal of losing 5 pounds than to promise that you will lose 15 pounds and not accomplish it.

Small victories give us the momentum to accomplish the larger goals, but all in due time. Keeping small promises to ourselves gives us the needed self-esteem boost to accomplish the bigger goals.

 So, whatever your goals are for 2023, may they be attainable and good for you.

Have a wonderful 2023!

Prayer: May the Lord bless you and keep you, may his light shine upon you in 2023, Amen
