“The best year of your life begins today.” -Alan Cohen-

Here we are into the bright fresh new year of 2008. With all of our new resolutions, our lists of all the things we are going to accomplish, all the projects we are going to start and the ones we are going to finish, the people we are going to meet and the differences we are gong to make for ourselves, the community and the world.

We are full of gusto and can’t wait to get started, we make our lists and start filling in that new clean daily planner and start organizing all of our ideas and plans. This is almost as exciting as making out our Christmas Lists for Santa when we were kids.

Then life sets in, our new hair cut turns out funky, the car has a flat, we forgot the one most important ingredient we wanted in the main dish for dinner at the store; traffic is backed up on the way to work and you are a half hour late for an important meeting and on and on ad infinitum. Our New Year bubble has been popped – what to do-

My suggestion is to gather affirmations for each page of your daily planner while you are inserting your great new appointments and projects for the new year, ones that motivate you – center you – empower you – you can find these online. You can also purchase daily card decks like (Abraham Hicks) and draw a card a day to carry with you on a daily basis.

Life is bound to set in for us, we just need to be prepared for it and have our “tools” ready so we can maintain our First Day of the year excitement and keep it new and fresh all year long.
