The Secret to Fulfilling Your New Year’s Resolution
Today’s Prompt: Back on January 21st, we asked you to predict what day #211 would be like. Well, July 30th is that day — how have your predictions held up so far? If you didn’t reply to the prompt at the time, is this year turning out to be as you’d expected?
At the start of this year, I made some pretty big decisions that would change my life. However after a few days, these decisions were beginning to overwhelm me. I started to doubt myself; wanting to quit before I even started.
This stopped when I saw a snail on the road on my way back to the gym. I saw it trying to move ever so slowly, going from one place to another. Its pace did not seem to matter. It was going on its own pace, not caring about anything or anyone. It seemed happy just because he is moving. It reminded me of the quote below:
If we are facing in the right direction, all we need to do is to keep walking.
Nearly 8 months on, this year is turning out so much better than I expected, and I have a snail to thank!!
