We place unrealistic expectations on ourselves, driven by the conditioning that we are defined by our achievements.
Today is the start of that annual expectation overload that will lead to disappointment in a few days, a few weeks, maybe a little longer.
If we listen to our mind and its story about us, we spend a lifetime with disappointment.
Allow joy to come from deep within our true essence and the universe will bring us all that we need. We do not have to achieve to experience joy. If joy flows, then we enjoy the moment of doing not the thinking about our goals.
Before starting anything in 2019 or at any point, don’t do it because the date changed and you feel you have to burden yourself with a tsunami of New Year’s resolutions to fit in.
We’ll all give up on them before the end of January if it is a chore and we don’t really want to.
Perhaps pause, plan, think, contemplate, or even better, accept that your life is already great. Funny how we never see that option. We always have to be doing more or changing something.
Maybe we could just choose to be ourselves for 2019 and beyond.
The date doesn’t matter, accepting what is and seeing that we already have all we need and taking the small steps does.
Moor yourself and enjoy life.
