We're midway through January, and no doubt you've seen all kinds of advice for making resolutions.
You've probably also seen the statistics on how many people make resolutions but don't keep them.
Honestly, there's so much talk about goals and dreams and reaching-for-the-stars that you might be feeling overwhelmed by this time.
I recently read this piece of advice from Helen Keller, one of my heroines. I thought it was just right for the feelings of overwhelm that can plague us this time of year:
"Your success and happiness lie in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties."
Isn't that amazing, coming from Helen Keller? If anyone knew about overcoming difficulties, certainly she did.
I have lots of goals and dreams for the new year, but I'm going to try resolving to keep happy and trust that a good attitude will go a long way toward helping me overcome difficulties.
How about you? Would like to join me in resolving to "keep happy"?
