ĎWe spend the early days of January walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our livesÖnot looking for flaws but for potential.í ~Ellen Goodman
New years resolutions all evolve around correcting whatís negative. Itís little wonder that they donít last. Of course itís important to check in on what needs improving but so often we concentrate only on the negative. As we begin this New Year why not check in on all thatís good and positive in my life. This is a great starting point. We can use all thatís good and positive as areas of growth and potential. When this happens the negative begins to be squeezed out. The message of the gospels reminds us that it wonít all happen today, but most certainly will over time.
(P.S As we journey through Christmas/New Year its time to relax and take it easy. Our thoughts and pictures from here to Jan 2nd will be taken from my book 'A Year In reflection' which is a collection of the best of 365 thoughts and photographs from this website. From Jan 2nd everything will be back to new photos and thoughts. Thanks....James
