Why I look forward to New Year Resolutions

Standard

New Year Resolutions.  Some of us love them, some of us hate them.  Most of us can’t help trying one or two, but maybe not the same ones as last year.

I love them.  I love them in the same way I love going away on holiday, or starting anything new.  I love new possibilities.  In particular, I love the opportunity to change.

I believe in change.  Of course I do. St Paul tells us to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind”.  If that isn’t a call to change I don’t know what is. And St Paul knows where it all starts: with out thinking.

One of the things I have learned over the last few years is not to believe everything I tell myself. You know what I mean – the little voice that predicts failure or regret.  Or drags up the things you don’t want dragged up.

The little voice is gearing itself up to sabotage my efforts to change.  This year I am going to cover my ears, say la-la-la as loud as I can and take some steps to change.

Happy New Year!
