As a new year begins, do you reflect on the past and project into the future?

Instead of resolving to do what we think we want to do but don’t, let’s simplify our ideas to make them more attainable, more personal and from the heart.

Spending more time with my loved ones. Exploring new and beautiful places, stretching my imagination. Appreciating the power of language and love.

Relishing every day. Waking up every morning and being thankful for a new dawn, for another opportunity to tell loved ones how much I cherish them. Connecting with new friends and strengthening old friendships. The people in my life — my family and friends—make my life so meaningful.

Taking care of my mind and body. Paying attention to what I eat, walking more, strengthening my body and being open to new ideas and opportunities.

And...staying calm. Going through each day with a serene strength to combat the stresses of today’s world.

I want to opt for the simpler things in life because I believe that’s where true values are found.

Join me, dear readers. Or create your own list.

Make 2023 about “taking care of me.” You deserve its rewards.

As a new year begins, do you reflect on the past and project into the future? Do you contemplate what you learned from the previous year? Do you think about what the coming year has in store, what more you really want in life?

These are the substances for what some call “New Year’s resolutions,” and as we are beginning another annual adventure, this is the perfect time to think of what we would want to change in our lives.

Instead of resolving to do what we think we want to do but don’t, let’s simplify our ideas to make them more attainable, more personal and from the heart.

Perhaps your suggestions will mirror mine:
