Welcome to 2016, where no goal is to big or to small

As I woke from my slumber this morning, the day had a new feel to it, a realization that this was a whole new year! A year with nothing in it yet, empty and void of any mistakes, hopes or dreams. It had a clean crisp feel to it as if I could do anything. Quite an inspiring thought to start the day with wouldn't you say?

There I was, sitting down to my computer to work, when I began checking my email and other forms of notifications. I soon realized the world began a new year like any other day. The routine was the same. I then wondered how many people made a new year's resolution? All filled with hopes and dreams of trying something new or maybe made the decision to put something behind them. Did these people find their day falling into the same old routine? Is that where it all begins? The downfall of resolutions past, present, and future?

While starting my day this way changed nothing for me, I began to wonder how many people this could possibly affect. Those who decide to make a resolution, might find it harder than they thought to make necessary changes in their lives.

How difficult have you found it in the past to keep your resolutions? Is there anything you have done that helps you reach your goals that might be helpful to others? While I may not have made a resolution per-say because of my condition I do set goals and follow them through to the end simply because there is no cure for hyperacusis and these goals help me adapt and advance in life. These goals are more like necessary restriction and accommodation to help me live a healthier, happier life.

Yes, today a blank canvas was put before us all. How will you paint your life? Are you looking to advance in your job, try something new or in general live a happier, healthier life?

I earned my first 25 cents from royalty pay from the sale of an e-book. LOL. I decided not to ignore when a neighbor starts firing a rifle into the air. This time I pulled all the stops and called the cops. They will think twice the next time they consider firing a few rounds. I hope mainly that our government will use more common sense when dealing with immigration, the war on I.S. and I wonder if Trump will actually beat Hillary in the 2016 presidential elections. I will be listening to the debates, both Republican and Democratic.

I no longer make New Year's Resolutions. I do set goals but they are usually continuations of things I began in the last year I want to complete in the new year.

Page 2 of a 365-page book for me. Benefits of living in the future. LOL!

No resolutions for me except that to do my best to be kind to myself and to others as well. If I can't be kind, the least I can do is to not hurt anyone.

I do not make New Years Resolutions anymore because in the past when I did make them, I always broke them.

True enough that people celebrate the New Year almost the same way.
Like what I have written in one of my posts, a new start and a new beginning!
