New Years Resolutions Don’t Work

by Linda Franklin

Phooey on New Years ResolutionNew Years Resolutions Don't Work, Linda Franklin, The Real Cougar Womans!  Let’s ban them forever because they just don’t work.   By January 15th, I have been frustrated by my list of woulda-coulda-shouldas but didn’ts.  That isn’t good way to start off a new year. So from now on no resolutions for me.

Starting with 2013, I am going to focus in on what makes me happy.  Sounds simplistic doesn’t it?  Well it is.  I am just going to train myself to pay attention to how I am feeling as I go about my day.  Notice what’s working and what’s not.  It’s just like training at the gym to gain muscle strength – the more you do it the stronger you get.  This is feeling good training.  The more you do the easier it gets.

Ask yourself this question –  “what’s more important” satisfying your demanding ego or nurturing your soul?  Both are tough taskmasters, but when you don’t satisfy your soul, you are always left feeling like something is missing from your life.  No matter how much  success you achieve, the good feeling drains away quickly leaving you feeling empty – searching for what’s next.

Let’s make 2013 a year of real change by replacing your resolutions with feeling good training.  When you are happy, your happiness has a way of radiating way beyond you and the rewards can be felt in all areas of your life.

Give it a try – you’ve got nothing to lose and the a world of happiness to gain.

Happy New Year.  Wishing you everything you wish for yourself.
