“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched…” 

It’s almost that time of the year where New Year Resolutions (with a capital R!) are born. What are you committing to this year? Will you plan for the tried and true…weight loss? Maybe there are books you have always wanted to read?  Perhaps there is a mountain that’s begging to be climbed or a 5K that isn’t going to run itself! The New Year is a time of hope when all things seem possible. So, we plan excitedly thinking about the changes the year might bring. It’s great to have goals and make resolutions! After all, if you don’t know where you are going you will not know when you get there. Making goals means we have something to look forward to; it means we believe in ourselves and the future.

So, this year find out what you value and what you would like to manifest in your life. Resolutions can be big (visit all 50 states in one year) or small (purchase beautiful cut flowers once a month) or anywhere in-between! Whatever you choose, know that you can change the trajectory of your life. It’s not too late to take those singing lessons or to learn how to pilot a plane. My wish for you is that throughout the year, not just on New Year Eve, you hold on to your goals and nurture your ability to hope.

“Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential.” - Ellen Goodman
