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?
