New Year Resolutions Don’t Work – Here’s Why

New Year Resolutions Don’t Work – Here’s Why

Do you set New Year Resolutions? Many of us set them based on something we don’t want in our life. Maybe you don’t want those extra pounds or don’t want to smoke or don’t want sugar cravings. It is only natural for us to want to fight against what is not working in our life. Yet, fighting against it does not lead to lasting change. I believe we need to love change into existence. That means finding the gift in what you have right now !!

Maybe you want to lose a few pounds, but what about your body do you appreciate right now? How could being “lighter”  bring more joy in to your life?

I learned some really amazing  lessons from the wonderful Louise Hay about creating change based on love. I hope these affirmations help you bring more joy and love and peace into your life.

“Self-approval and self-acceptance in the now are the main keys to positive changes in every area of our lives.” – Louise Hay

“Every thought we think is creating our future. ” ~ Louise Hay

“Love is always the answer to healing of any sort.” ~ Louise Hay

“No matter where we live on the planet or how difficult our situation seems to be, we have the ability to overcome and transcend our circumstances.” ~ Louise Hay

“Be willing to take the first step, no matter how small it is. Concentrate on the fact that you are willing to learn. Absolute miracles will happen.” ~ Louise Hay

“I will not be distracted by noise, chatter, or setbacks. Patience, commitment, grace, and purpose will guide me.” ― Louise L. Hay

My very favorite one is …..

“When we expand our thinking and beliefs our love flows freely. When we contract we shut ourselves off. Can you remember the last time when you were in love? Your heart went ahhh!! It was such a wonderful feeling. It is the same with loving yourself except that you will never leave once you have your love for yourself.It’s with you for the rest of your life, so you want to make it the best relationship that you can have.” ~ Louise Hay
