Get the jump on your New Year’s resolutions in this week’s photo challenge.
“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” ~ Dale Carnegie ~
Not roses as mentioned in Dale Carnegie’s quote above, my photo for this week’s challenge are magical magnolia blossoms. Although I love to travel, I don’t need to travel from home to enjoy life. It seems whether it is a shadow on the wall, curtains dancing in the breeze, enjoying a coffee on the front porch, sitting with a child or by myself in the swing hanging from the tree, or watching birds entertaining themselves – there is always something to be grateful for. New horizons can be enjoyed through learning.
The quote from Dale Carnegie is quite appropriate for my New Year’s Resolution to become a certified Dale Carnegie instructor in 2017. I plan to live life to the fullest in 2017 as every other year past and look forward to living in the moment while taking steps to reach more life fulfilling goals. This will include laughing and dancing more, daily writing, exercise, healthy eating, learning new photography techniques, guiding clients along their path, living mindfully, daily meditations, participating in learning retreats, meeting new healers and growing in a community of wellness advocates to name a few. As always, spending quality time with my family and watching my grandchildren grow and learn will be a major part of 2017.
What are your goals for 2017? Do you spend time writing down your dreams, goals, desires and take steps to reach them?
