HAVE A GAME PLAN
Would our Army storm a battlefield without a plan?Nor should you.The holidays are upon us, the fiestas are in full swing. Rather than giving all of the sweets and treats a fast & furious one-way ride into your mouth (well… maybe not for some of us), have a plan. Go in blindly, and you’re done. If getting or remaining fit is your goal, here are a few tips for doing so: Drink plenty of water before each party. Doubling up will leave less room in your stomach for food, and hydrate you at the same time. Next, start off with fruits, vegetables, or salads. Then, when you are well on your way to being comfortably full, enjoy a few of your favorite things. Ring in the New Year feeling Victorious, NOT depleted & defeated.
Are You Happy?
A friend of mine posed a wonderful question in her blog: “Did you find happiness in the glitter and under the tinsel?” The answer would be no. Although some people do put their hopes in finding their happiness via external factors—in gifts, money, their position, their possessions, or having other’s approval and admiration—that is not the answer. Your happiness has been, and always will be right inside yourself. It is not about external things. Lasting happiness is an inside job.
Have you ever met a person who when asked how he/she is, will always, without hesitation, answer: “Great!” That person has the inside track. In the book The Road to Happiness by Mac Anderson and B.J. Gallagher, this is clearly underscored:
If you can’t find happiness inside yourself, you’ll never find it in the outside world, no matter where you move. Wherever you go, there you are. You take yourself with you.
What will it take for you to be happy? As Benjamin Franklin aptly pointed out, “The U.S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up to it yourself.” This concept is important, because it puts you in charge of your own happiness. It puts you into the present moment…where is your deep joy right now? Do you know the happiness inside you? Can you feel it? Choose it? Manifest it?
It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “I think a person is about as happy as he/she makes up their mind to be!” How’s your happiness quotient?
What makes you happy—from the inside out? When are you most grateful? When are you in your element? What part of giving do you resonate with? What makes you smile? When are you most in harmony with the world? What relationships bring you joy? These are essential clues to consider.
As we enter the New Year, 2017, I invite you to take a look at this inspirational YouTube video link on claiming your happiness.
That way, the next time someone asks you, “How are you?” You will assuredly answer, “Great!” Because your happiness is an inside job…and you know how to be happy from the inside out.
