New years resolutions are common to make and probably even more common to break. We approach with the best of intentions and then a few days, weeks or months into the process we are often back to our old habits. Why do we fall into these patterns? Are we afraid of the hard work? Are we afraid of change? Maybe not making the resolutions in the first place is the easiest way to not feel like a big old failure at them, right? I think most of us have a dream or goal we always push to the future. We say "maybe someday" or put it in an "if only" category, using something else as the obstacle for why we just can't do or get what we want.
2020 brought a lot of pain and unpredictability, and it couldn't be over soon enough for me. Amongst the uncertainty of this pandemic, health, employment, financial security, etc., I know we can all do our best to take some time our for ourselves. 2021 means change and I say BRING IT!!
