I'm not big on New Year's resolutions -- I guess it's because I don't want to set myself up for failure or have them hanging over my head.
But I do admire those who do make resolutions at the start of every year, and especially those who keep them!
That said, I have set a few simple "goals" -- a more encouraging word, in my mind, to start off 2020. These include being more patient with others and myself; taking more time to relax; getting back on the exercise bike that has been buried behind Christmas gifts and wrappings in my office-turned- "Santa's Workshop"; trying not to dread winter storms and to instead enjoy the beauty of fresh-fallen snow; and others I'm sure I will think of as the new year progresses.
I like what Author Edith Lovejoy Pierce says about the new year -- "We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
In the meantime, Happy New Year! Wishing everyone progress, good health, happiness, and that you have everything you need in the coming year.
Do you make New Year's resolutions? Want to share any?
