When the year is ending, do you look back or look ahead?
I’m not talking about taxes or a business plan here although they are very important. What I’m referring to when I ask if you look back or look ahead is your attitude toward your life.
Are you someone who looks back, holds on to the past and regrets the year that is ending, or are you someone who relishes new year with its opportunities, challenges and excitement? The unknowns, the dreams to be achieved and realized…where does your focus lie?
This is a particularly important question from my point of view, because as a chronically depressed person for the majority of my adult life, I held on to the ending year, held on to regrets and things I wished I could go back and change. I was fearful of the New Year about to begin.
I’ve written a book about my accidental recovery from depression by changing what I eat. It’s title is, “Eat Your Blues Away”, and I wrote it because what happened to me is too life-changing to keep it to myself. Sure, I could have just enjoyed my own recovery, but that would have been selfish and I do believe a cowardly thing to do.
In a world where so many of us strive for self-improvement and personal development, this is information I have to share with as many people as possible. Writing a book seemed to be the way to do that.
One of the changes I’ve noticed is that with every New Year, I am excited now. Excited about the possibilities, the adventures and the good I can do in the world. I no longer hold on to the past as I used to. That in itself is very freeing.
I invite you to think about how you’re feeling and what your thoughts are on December 31st as the clock is counting down to January 1st. If you’re feeling down and hanging on to the past, I hope you will give yourself the gift of my book and read about how I changed my life and “disappeared” chronic depression.
What I did to change my life so completely wasn’t magic, but it was magical. I did it, and so can you. “Eat Your Blues Away” is a great way to begin the New Year and what may very well be a new way of life for you.
