Every year I vow…
This is the year I plan to change my life.
Every year, I fail.
It’s not that nothing improves. Some things improve. Other things degrade.
But the kind of earth shattering transformational change (that seems possible according to numerous movies, personal accounts & blogs) within 365 days or less has alluded me.
While I might be wise to accept graciously the positive changes that do come. Chalk my failures up to setting my sights too high. And, let go of my far fetched dream,
I sit here now in 2018 vowing the same thing.
I feel like both Edison working on the lightbulb and a snail trying to reach a peak.
It seems impossible. But it’s impossibility will not dissuade me.
I take with me into this year all that I have –
– A long list of things that don’t work
– New, updated values
– Clear priorities
– Raised standards
– A loosely structured plan
– Fingers crossed
That I’ll achieve by the end of 2018 what a whispering voice in my head tells me may be forever lost.
While finding the secret(s) to improving each aspect of my life.
To do so, I plan to work with a single minded focus that slips easily out of my grip.
To use all the resources I have to make this transformational change spring forth.
In only one regard will I repeat the past…
I’ll try something.
And, if necessary…
Scrap what I was doing.
Come up with a new plan.
