Have you ever set a New Year’s Resolution?
Have you ever chosen not to set a New Year’s Resolution?
Have you ever claimed “My New Year’s Resolution is to not have any New Year’s Resolutions”?
A few years ago, I felt guilty for ever getting excited and setting some goals for the new year. It seemed every conversation covering resolutions took on a significantly negative tone. And I bought into it.
Then, I read a blog where someone said they always looked forward to the new year and the hope that it brings.
So, today, I want to take a stab at doing that for you. You may find yourself having given up hope for 2018 based on 2017 as a whole, or in part. Well, it is not too late to change your approach. It is okay to hope.
What if 2018 becomes the year you do something great? What if 2018 becomes the year you accomplish that goal you’ve never seemed to achieve before? What if you have matured as a person to the point where the mistakes you made in your younger days will no longer provide as much resistance as you remember?
Let yourself, for just a moment, find hope and refreshing in the changing of the calendar, even if we are a few days behind.
Pick one thing you’d like to accomplish this year and write it in a place where it will serve as a reminder for you. Stick with it. Keep it in front of you. Pursue it. Achieve it.
Who knows, maybe 2018 will be the best year yet for both of us. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
