This is the time of the year where we make resolutions that we stick to for thirty days, we promise ourselves this year is "our" year and we begin to work on ourselves more than ever whether that is clearing the clutter in our desks, eating more vegetables, attempting to floss more or the all mighty resolution, losing weight.
For me, I have set resolutions every year in the back of my mind and rarely do I ever follow through, instead I end up just setting new goals along the way as opportunities pop up. I don't think that's a sign of me failing at my set intentions, but rather adapting to the ever changing life ahead of me. For 2018, we will be getting married, which opens up a whole new chapter in itself! I also will be embarking on a small part time position at the local college as an instructor; which is a very new and exciting adventure!
Saying Hello to 2018 feels good! I know that while good things are ahead I am sure challenges hide among them. I am open to change, adaptation, new experiences and adventures that take bravery, hope or drive. I am welcoming 2018 with the idea that my life is for ever changing, but my support through it all has remained stable.
I wish everyone else the same excitement for their 2018 ahead. The open mind to accept new experiences, the open heart to love those that surround us and the open door to let others in.
