By Clarita:A new year is just over the horizon. I wanted to share some thoughts on how our awareness and perceptions of life's events can make a difference to success or failure. As we make our New Year's Resolutions for 2013, let's create them with Expanded Awareness!******
I have started getting posts on Facebook and commercials on TV about Biggest Loser. There is so much excitement about the New Season. Jillian Michaels is coming back and this year they are having some kids take part too. I really like Biggest Loser. I know most people aren't going to lose half their body weight in 6 months, but it is inspiring to see the difference that losing weight can make in their lives. Even though for most of us it will take long to lose "half our body weight", that doesn't mean it can't be done so don't give up hope.

I FEEL COMPELLED TO EXPRESS TO YOU, MY DEAR FRIENDS, THAT TODAY IS THE DAY TO TAKE SOME TIME TO "CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSETS". I KNOW HOW EASY IT IS TO HOLD ON TO THINGS (MATERIAL AND EMOTIONAL) BECAUSE IT IS WHAT YOU KNOW AND IT IS WHAT HAS BECOME COMFORTABLE. IN ORDER TO OPEN YOUR HEART AND SPACE TO NEW BEGINNINGS, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO FREE THOSE THOUGHTS OR HABITS THAT HAVE LEAD YOU TO FEEL STAGNATE.
2012 goal to become more flexible. You betcha. Definitely. Check. Beware the common misperception that resolutions don't work. They often do.Other: Better nutrition habits for me and my family. Check. I am a student, not just a teacher. Fitness is more than exercise. Education and application helps me to help others.Lastly, more action and less fear to leave something good for something better. Yep. What will you risk leaving and gaining this year?
