Today is for reflecting on the past year and planning for the new year. For remembering the good times and the not so good times, family and friends lost and those that remain, for honestly assessing the choices we made and the outcomes those choices merited, and deciding if we want to repeat them or change them. If we are brutally honest with ourselves, we know that we go through life repeating the same choices over and over and over again with the same outcomes as a result. But still each year we come up with our ideas of what will make us better. Our New Years’ Resolutions.
I have come up with a few for myself this year. They are:
Take care of my soul, mind and body.
Treat everyone with respect and kindness.
Work hard and always do my best.
Develop more patience with others and myself.
Remember to do what I love.
I know that I am destined to fail at times, I am human, but instead of those lofty resolutions of my youth, I just want to be the child of God He wants me to be.
What are your resolutions for 2023?
Blessings to all and a Very Happy New Year!
