A New Take On New Year Resolutions
Welcome to 2014 Ladies!
It’s been a little while since we’ve posted anything and though we’ve missed our beautiful girls, we wanted to take some time to reflect on the direction of life and truly allow our hearts and thoughts to be at rest. Through this, we’ve come across a pretty great way to see the New Year ahead and of course, wanted to share the love with each of you;)
For many, New Year Resolutions are in full effect and a list of the year’s ‘To Do’ has sadly already begun to take a toll. Why do we do this? Why do we look at our lives year after year and think to ourselves, ‘I’m going to be better this time’…. as if we’re labeling our lives as insufficient.
Luckily, this is sooooo far from the truth. Our lives, the trails in which we’ve walked both in the past and our fantasies for the future come together, forming the large collision we call the ‘present’; the life in which we live right now.
So what do we do with the now? How do we live it if we’re only looking at the past in hopes of controlling the future? We say, let it go. Sounds simple and we know it’s easier said than done but with true commitment and perseverance, letting go is the natural after math and a heart at peace.
For me, I’m throwing away the entire entity of a placing New Year’s Resolution on myself and choose to be open. With an open heart, life now has the ability to bring on the blessings and since I have no list to look at how poorly my year will be or has been, I’m able to simply just be… wherever life takes me.
So enjoy the moments in which you have control over, the present of today, and let life surprise you. I promise, you won’t regret it!
From our RED world to yours, let your heart guide you, say a little prayer to the heavens, and step forward.
