The only way to stick with a New Year's resolution is

American Contemporary plein air painter. Remember, the resolutions that you made for 2014 ?
Remember trying to hold on to them ? 

Don't be ordinary - resolutions are what the ordinary people do for New Year.  

 Don't set yourself up to fail. 

The feeling of 'why can't I stick with it - is what inevitably sticks with you instead.

So... what can you do ?
Find something that changes your thinking, just ONE thing' and you take that first step towards a changed 2015. 

No resolutions, no promises, no bargains with God or the Devil ...we're not meant to be clean slates. Our lives are about memories - if you feel lost, turn around and reflect - if you feel happy, truly savor the moment and smile with gratitude. It's about just you and no one knows you or what motivates you better than you do.                            

Can you feel the possibilities that just crossed over from 2014 ?
