September always feels like a New Year. School starts again, weather gets cooler, and summer funÂ quickly becomes a distant memory.Â Life seems to speed up after being in a state of hot lazy summer vacation.Â Gyms even seem to get busier.
It almost seems like the right time to make or re-examine goals (shhhâ€¦we donâ€™t call them resolutionsâ€¦because these are just doomed for failure!). Â All too often we bite off more than we can chew, or make commitments that arenâ€™t going to truly benefit us physically or emotionally.
Imagine you told someone your goal was to do less? I bet they would think you meant you were committing to being lazy.
Or if you told someone you were going to really try hard to be â€œyourâ€ best-friend. Thatâ€™s probably just asking for a quick admittance to One Flew over the Cuckooâ€™s Nest.
How about if you told a co-worker you were making enemies with food? Bet you wouldnâ€™t be sitting at their lunch table tomorrow.
Butâ€¦these are all healthy goals. Achieving these may restore some balance in a life so full of chaos thereâ€™s hardly time to breathe some days.
And once youâ€™ve mastered thatâ€¦.
Sometimes we just need to stop and re-evaluate…and that is resolution enough.
