When new year near to come some people do list of the thing that they wanted to change and achieve in their life. And so, I'm sometimes like this people, but as now I feel little unknown what really I wanted to do, what I mean I feel no enthusiasm this year to do the list what I need to change in my life and to achieve. I'm in the middle confusion in my life, it like I just floating in the running water in the river and I put my destiny in the direction where the flow bring me.... How about you my co-mylotting, how you feel about this coming new year?

No new years resolutions for me. I allways set little goals for myself throughout the year, and I reward myself with small treats when I manage to archieve them. It works a lot better then setting one big goal. I am not very fond of new years resolutions because they tend to get broken. Any time is just as good as new years, if you have a good feeling about quiting smoking in july; why not? Reflecting on your actions and desires is something we should do more often, save valuable time and make ourselves more happy by taking time to get in contact with out innerselves.

That not only sounds really good but sensible too. To do things in small steps, to reward those small steps, is so much better than a huge unatainable goal.

So far it has worked very well for me. For example: I did not set the goal to get my diploma, deep down inside I want to do so but I devide it into smaller pieces. To get my tests in the first semester for example, or just one single test at a time. I can reward myself with little things like a free night with no homework, a bucket of Ben en Jerry Ice Cream, a visit to a friend or a new sweater. It depends on how big the goal I archieved is and what I feel like at the time being. I've found out it's very motivating to archieve a bunch of little goals, then to archieve one big one. Also, the dissapointment if the big goal doesn't work out is less intense. At least you know you did well on 3 other tests for example, even if you 'failed' the big goal of passing all 4 of them. Thanks for responding!

I pretty much take life as it comes. I don't make firm lists of things to do. When I don't live up to them I end up feeling guilty.

I feel excitement for the coming year. I am welcoming 2009 with great enthusiasm and not for one reason but for what the year has to bring us all. I have not made one or more resolutions but have put thought towards how I would like the New Year to start and unfold. I am thinking about making a poster of my visions for the future, what hopes and dreams, desires and wishes I hope to have fulfilled. I am not putting any pressure on me but look forward to gently fulfilling a few ideas of main importance. Particularly improving health, training my dog and just making the best of what we have to work with. I wish all the Happiest of New Year.
