New Year’s Resolutions-ish

We’re about ⅔ of the way through January and whew…what a year it has been already. Like many of you, I have made resolutions for the new year, but this year, I decided to write my resolutions a little differently. Sometimes when we make these resolutions, we create a long list of things without also figuring out how we will achieve them. When we look back at the list at the end of the year and see how much we didn’t accomplish, we feel let down and like a failure. So, instead of creating a list that would possibly lead to upset at the end of the year, I decided to craft my resolutions more intentionally and created a clear path on how to achieve them. I started by making a “Goals of 2021” list. I picked the top three things I wanted to focus on and then created my resolutions based off of those goals. Now, am I saying that I will absolutely achieve all of the goals I laid out, no. We are human and we have to remember to give ourselves grace. Listen, stuff happens and it’s ok. It’s all about not letting your setbacks be permanent, but temporary. So, take some time to look at your resolutions for the year again and ask yourself the following questions. Do they align with your goals for the year? Are the attainable? Are they truly priorities for you right now? If not, revise and renew!
