At the beginning of every year, I sometimes think of how I want it to go. I do the same thing in September. Two points where I regroup and wonder. I know my long term goals, those remain unchanged, but what about now. How do I tackle the year with my life and where do I want to be at the end of it?
I mean, really, how can we create expectations that are out of our control? I know I can be repetitive with my topics and embarrass myself on a daily basis. I can be awkward and quiet or social and friendly. I like to please and hate it when people talk about me behind my back. Most of the time, I'm probably walking contradiction. Trust me, I'm not easy to be around.
The thing is--I'm thankful everyday. I'm thankful for my family and friends and my life. Especially those who put up with me. So this year, I will continue to look at things differently, challenge, and inspire. I will push myself and help others. I will keep an open mind and not let little things get under my skin.
I've already had some small changes happen and I'm thrilled to look ahead and let the past be the past.
Looking at the world with new eyes, trying something new, challenge yourself, meet someone new and treasure the ones you love--all of these add up to new beginnings, which can lead to a new you.
Obviously, this week has been about reflection.
So, what are you looking forward to this year?
Have a great day!
