A few years ago I read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. And as I was finishing it, it inspired me to make my own list.
If you haven't read her book yet, it is basically a year in her life in which every month she makes a list of goals for herself to follow - and then tries to continue each month's goals throughout her year. The goals are to help her be happier. She doesn't admit to being depressed, as much as she claims she could use a little more happiness in her life. And I agree - who wouldn't want more happiness!
It is so easy for me to second guess myself. I have spent so much of my life hiding from myself that sometimes I surprise myself with what I love and what I know. I can get lost in the Negative Nancy thoughts and psych myself out of doing things. And I know I am not the only one.
Many people make New Year's Resolutions. I'm one of them. But this year... something different. Something to allow me to make small steps in the right direction. Over time. In chewable bites. This year I am starting TODAY - on the New Moon - and creating one RITUAL to grow with for the moon cycle...
