Happy New Year my friends! It’s that time of year when we start afresh, with a blank slate, and think about the possibilities that the new year holds for us.
One of the most common sources of difficulty for most of us is frustration – we can get frustrated with the smallest things, throughout the day.
I’ve had several people ask me lately about what they can do about indecisiveness, and it made me realize that this is actually something I’m pretty good at: being decisive.
It is a wonderful thing to have order to our lives, to simplify and have routines and systems that make things peaceful, organized, and calm.
Unfortunately, life likes to throw chaos and disorganization our way.
Our plans never turn out as tasty as reality. ~Ram Dass
If only life went exactly as we imagine it would go … things would be so much easier!
The things that stop us from taking action are all-too-familiar:
There’s a hope that when we start creating a new habit that we’ll master it and never have to worry about it again, or when we start a new project that it’ll go perfectly.
As much as we desire being connected to others — good friendships, a wonderful romantic relationship, close family members — this connection always comes at a cost.
We get frustrated by other people.
Dropping any story or narrative in your head about what’s happening right now … what are the sensations you’re feeling at this moment?
