"What you focus on becomes your reality"
Here we are - 2017. I barely got used to writing 2016 and the year is gone. 2016 was a fast year, wasn't it?
At this time of the year, I always spend some time thinking about the year just over and the one coming up. Although it is tempting to write "resolutions" for the new year, I always have a hard time even remembering them a few months (or weeks) into the year, much less accomplishing them!
That said, I have decided to write my "hopes" for the new year.
I hope we both can:
1. recognize and focus on the moments in our everyday lives that bring us joy or contentment
2. choose to focus on the things that matter to us, whatever they may be
3. know that it's ok to rest
4. laugh more
5. eat well
6. move more
7. I hope we can focus on doing something nice for someone else.
If it's true that my focus becomes my reality, I hope I can focus on the beauty and kindness all around me and you are part of that.
What will you focus on this year? Let me know in the comments - I would love have you join the conversation!
