What have you done to make yourself proud?

O.K., it's 2010...... new decade...... blah blah blah, yada yada yada. We've all heard it before."time to make your new years resolutions." Lose weight, start exercising, be on time,etc. Same old same old. And oh ya, it's a new decade.... so no pressure there!
Take a deep breath...relax..... it's not a big deal unless you make it one. I think it's time to dump the internal voice that shouts in your ear,"this is gonna be the year I'm going to"___________________(fill in the blank). Listen folks, everyday you get a "do over" as Cleveland Clinic's Dr.Roizen puts it. We don't collectively have to make those decisions and take action only at the beginning of the year. Sure for some people it represents a starting point and it can be extremely helpful. However, you can pick any starting point you'd like. If you are alive and breathing and I assume you are if you're reading this blog, then decide for yourself what makes the most sense for you! Every minute of the day we get to choose our thoughts. The light bulb can turn on over your head at any point in your life. But here's something to think about for the New Year. Don't waste your life wondering how great you could have been, or how many people could have been helped by your actions, or what kind of wonderful business you coud have created that put others to work. Don't die "wondering" Don't leave this world with your potential untapped. If you do decide to make resolutions this year, my suggestion is to resolve to do something everyday that makes you feel proud. It doesn't have to be a grandious gesture............God is found in the details of life. I guarantee it will change how you feel about yourself. If you make this a goal, write it down, place it where you'll see it often as a reminder--by the way --this works for all goals--it will heighten your awareness and you'll start seeing more opportunities to take action steps to do the things that make you feel proud.
And lest you thought I forgot, true to my nature as a wellness coach (see title of my blog) it's still my duty to remind you ---no excuses!-30 min of cardio today!!!! "whack" that's the sound of my whip cracking.
