Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Kerri Connor, author of Spells for Tough Times.
So it’s February. Chances are some of you have already dropped off your New Year’s resolutions. I admit I am not one to make resolutions, simply because I believe they set us up for failure. Too many people that I know have made their resolutions and a few weeks into the new year, they mess up and decide to drop them altogether. They decide to put them off for another year, thinking that something will change, and then make the same resolutions over and over again.
Have you ever fallen into this trap?
I’m here to tell you don’t have to do that. You do not have to wait until New Year’s, or any other special day of the year for that matter, to decide to make changes in your life. You can make these changes at any time. As the saying goes, every morning when you wake up it is, “the first day of the rest of your life.” You can use any one of these days to make changes that need to be made.
Don’t continue smoking for eleven more months when you can quit today.
Don’t give up on your exercise routine because you missed a day or two.
In my book Spells for Tough Times, there are many spells to help you get started on changing your life for the better.
Often when reading a spell, there are instructions for a certain time the spell should be performed. While there is an optimum time for some spells to be performed, it is important to remember you do not have to wait. If the optimum time for a spell is during a full moon, and itâ€™s currently a new moon phase, you do not have to wait to perform the spell (you just may want to perform it more than once). Go ahead and cast your spell now, and do it again during the full moon.
It is important to remember we can make a new start at any time. We do not have to wait. We do not have to procrastinate. We simply need to suck it up and get ourselves back on track.
Just because you’ve messed up some doesn’t mean you can’t keep moving on, progressing. Put your mistakes behind you. Forgive yourself. Move on and move forward. Pick up the pieces and start all over.
We only fail when we stop trying.
As a great Jedi master once said, “Do or do not. There is no try.”
