There’s still time to make some meaningful New Year’s resolutions! We all moved on from the holiday festivities, but our need for joy, health, and happiness is permanent. Here in Indiana, kids are back at school this week and although we’ve all returned to our “normal routines,” we’d like this year to be different and better in some way. What resolutions can we make that will really make a difference? My colleague, Kay Stroud, writing for the January 2, 2015 edition of the News Mail, shares healings and how they highlight two resolutions that can be a game-changer. Here’s Kay:
While some of us are still dealing with the influx of visitors, festivities and sun-soaked holidays, in the back of our minds is the niggling thought that 2015 has already begun and now is the time to make our New Year’s resolutions, before it’s too late.
Some are choosing to eat healthier and exercise more. That certainly can make us feel better.
Two other resolutions that go hand-in-hand will not only increase your health but change your life for the better: choose the positive viewpoint over the negative and care more for others.
A friend related how his acquaintance was in hospital recently, suffering from a life-threatening illness. Things were looking pretty grim and it seemed that he was hanging on by a thread. Then his heart stopped and he ceased breathing. At that moment, the medical staff on duty in that area of the hospital noticed that he was passing on and began to congregate around his bed …. not rushing to him with defibrillator or drip, but unexpectedly telling jokes, laughing and talking loudly and animatedly about everyday things. They continued by his bedside including everyone in the ward in the jovial conversation until he began to regain consciousness. The man made a full recovery.
