Fridays Musings.......

As the first full week of the new year draws to a close, how many of our resolutions or goals have also been closed out?  If most of you are like me if you haven't given them up yet they're dangling by a thread.  What makes us give these things up so quickly.  I know that some of you are able to keep them for the entire year.  Some of you are even better than that, and you are able to turn them into habits that you keep for the rest of your life.

I will admit that I don't have a great track record of turning resolutions into habits, it has happened, just not all that often.  I know that many of my resolutions in my past had no chance of working, there was just too little committment to them.  What do we need to do in order to keep our resolutions and goals and turn them into (hopefully) productive traits or habits?  I came across a quote by Thomas Edison that explains the process better than I can.

"The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary."

That really is all that there is to it.  Grab hold of them and work at them with all of our physical and mental energies.  This comes from a  man that had several thousand failures before he developed a light bulb that worked.  Anyway this is just some thoughts that I hope will help you and me to make and keep our goals and resolutions.

Edison' quote is interesting and he didn't have all the distravtions in his day

I have never been a resolution maker and I'm not going to start now.  I prefer to do all those "resolution" type things on an ongoing basis.  Sometimes I'm eating healthy and sometimes I'm not, but stating it in a resolution won't make it happen for me.  I believe in living each day doing the best I can at that moment.

Sharon: That is a good idea also!  I believe that you should do the best that you can each day, if you do that, what else is there?

Last year I started the year out with affirmations not resolutions.  I said them to myself all year long and it was amazing how many I accomplished. I'm even starting to like exercising (that one is huge for me.) Long story short I intend to keep up my affirmations this year also.
