Every end of year brings with it the opportunity to review the last 12 months, usually with a critical perspective as we hope to have a better year for the next. The last few days, or more accurately the last few hours of the year have us mentally scrutinizing and drafting a list of ‘new year resolutions’ ~ essentially promises to ourselves that life will be more than what it was the last. The list stereotypically includes weight loss or health goals, more adventure, to save better ~ it’s essentially a wish list of what we hope our lives would be…that is a lot of pressure for the transition that literally lasts moments that only change the last digits on the calender.
Resolution maker – I am one of those people. I usually start drafting my written resolutions days before the year comes to a close. I am a goal orientated person and what better time to reset my list than the new year! New date, new year, new start! I usually write a year in review of all the great things as well as the not so great things that happened – this task alone could be somewhat therapeutic in putting the year to bed.
All except this year.
This year I merely embraced the time ticking over. This was the first year in a long while where I didn’t feel the need to make a list to feel guilty about failing to stick to by January’s end. This was also the first year that I wasn’t in a rush to close the chapter on – it was a surprisingly great year all round ~ older and wiser perhaps? The ability to allow things to slide off me as opposed to worrying about things that just can’t be changed? Whatever the reason… here’s to 2015!
A year of greatness!!!
A year of prospering happiness!!!
A year of no pressure to be anything but your authentic self….
