If I’m being honest, I didn’t love 2016. Not at all. My family is healthy & happy and we had a wonderful year. And yet, I felt unsettled. Is it age? Is it my health? Is there something more for me? Loud, giant questions- with what I’m sure will be simple, quiet answers in the months and years to come. I want to feel hopeful in this new year. I read something this weekend to eliminate resolutions and turn them into revolutions. Oh, how much do you love that?!?
So, in this first week, I am starting personal practices that will carry me through the year. Mindfulness, wellness, journaling, strengthening connections, and creating joy. If I know myself, the starting is easy and the follow through is the challenge. I hope that creating structure to each practice will enable me to keep it going. It’s going to be tough work and I’m certain I will be uncomfortable, but I also know it’s going to be worth it!
What are you working toward in 2017?
