“It is ultimately our thinking, more than our outer circumstances, that determines whether we live lives of harmony and peace or pain and despair.” -Marianne Williamson
I am excited to start 2011 with a fresh and motivated mind set. Today is my first day officially back in the ‘office’ after being sick for what seemed like forever, having the hubby sick, holidays, mini-family trips, and taking a few days to re-energize from a happily exhausting first year in business. I plan to be super productive and disciplined today! I have high expectations for 2011, so I must start it in full force! I started my new sleep pattern (aka sleeping like a normal person, at least 7 hours at night versus the 2-4 hours between the hours of 8am and noon) and I woke up with more energy than ever! I plan to eat right, beginning today and really nurture myself, because in 2010, I forgot about myself. It’s true, I rarely slept, even rarely ate right and I know my health declined due to that. If I am not healthy, what good am I to my family, friends, clients?
I plan on checking in with myself before making any decisions today (and in the future for that matter). I will take a deep breath, relax, and listen to my inner voice (which so often I dismiss irritably, especially when I am stubborn about something). I will then make the best decision for me. I will not be pressured to please other people this year. Yes, I said it (and it felt good getting that off my chest!)
I hope you do the same. Happy 2011, may it be filled with happiness & success!
