The Revolution Resolution

Opening Chat

As we enter into New Year's Eve, Lezli, Kimjera and Sonia chat about their plans. Lezli and Kimjera are planning quiet nights at home snuggling poolside with family.  Sonia is looking forward to bundling up and heading to her terrace to watch the gorgeous St. John's fireworks.


The Resolution Revolution

  • We've been practicing resolution setting for about 4,000 years, beginning with the Babylonians. That took place in spring, with the planting of the crops.
  • In more recent history, John Wesley (founder of Methodism) encouraged annual covenant renewal services to bring in the New Year in an interactive way.
  • Centers often have New Year's events.  Kimjera's Center, CSL Murietta Valley, is hosting an intention setting gathering.
  • We can sometimes set ridiculous resolutions that don't stick because they are unrealistic and negative.
  • Switching from resolutions to setting intentions helps us stay positive. Think about what you're inviting in rather than fixing something that's broken. It's easy and you are more likely to make a real change, in a natural and organic way.
  • The Resolution Revolution is in using positive language. Deprivation sets our amygdala into high-jack mode. It creates stress and distress. Being positive and realistic helps us actually make real change.
  • Making too many resolutions, or unrealistic resolutions, sets us up to feel like failures.
  • Instead, think about what you want to have!
  • Kimjera's word for the year is THRIVING!
  • Sonia's word for the year is COLLABORATE!
  • Lezli's Word(s) for the year are OWNING IT!
  • Vision boarding can help you make your resolution real!
