So, you’ve made that New Year’s resolution. You’ve started out great, and THEN…
Our emotions and minds are prone to being shaken, and on our own we can only do so much to hold ourselves together. BUT we aren’t on our own. We aren’t alone.
Its so easy to give advice without giving anything away personally. The little snippets that we put on social media can be carefully measured to not reveal any more of ourselves that we care to put out there. In a way, that’s good. Honestly, there are some things that just don’t need to be […]

The fact that your plans don’t work out the way you envisioned, doesn’t mean they won’t work out at all!

If you are a goal oriented, recovering perfectionist like me, then a setback would be viewed critically and a review of the goals would serve as a reminder of failure. That’s not good. I think this may be one reason why so many give up on their goals.
What about a different approach?
Feeling frustrated to the point of wanting to give up doesn’t mean that you are unsuccessful. More than likely, it means that you are trying. You are chasing goals. You are out of your comfort zone. You are DOING GREAT!
