2016: The Year of Discipline

I read somewhere that January is really a practice month and that the year officially starts in February.  So, since January is almost over…yeah, I’m going with that.quote-Dalai-Lama-whether-you-call-it-buddhism-or-another-143185

It was suggested that I make 2016 my year of discipline — to bring to fruition the various talents, goals, and projects that have been incubating in my head.  I accept.

While it may seem like I’m off to a late start, I’m not.  I had some mental sorting to do.   But through this process, I discovered that writing will help get it out of my head and make it easier to track my *actual* progress.  So I write.

Discipline vs. Stress

I’ve always viewed stress as an external force.  But I am learning that much of what I consider “stress” in very much within my control.  It depends very much on my input/output.

Leave it…leave it….
  • Mental & Spiritual – People tend to think negatively, so I’ve started a program of meditation and affirmations.  Also, I am more conscience of what I send out into the universe.  It listens and responds in-kind.
  • Physical – I’m changing what I eat.  If it makes me feel crappy, it’s off the menu! I’ve also reignited my passion for yoga.  I feel stronger every day!!
  • Financial – Money has always been a difficult subject for me, but I am determined to work passed this issue using all the tools at my disposal.

So there you have it.  I don’t expect to have it all figured out by December, but I will make significant strides.   And of course, I will have a lot of fun along the way!!
