As the new year approaches I hear and see a lot in regards to making "resolutions" for the new year. Every year around this time, it tends to be a subject matter that people will debate, ponder, and try to deliver on. Making a resolution is very easy, but keeping these resolutions are much harder to keep than we can imagine.
In the past I must admit I was on the resolution band wagon and made an oath to the resolution gods that I would put all these things in place. All of these things that I knew damn well would not get past the month of February... I would join a gym, I would lose weight, I would eat healthier (I do for the most part anyway), and blaseh blaseh. And then one year I had an epiphany, I would make time to make my "resolutions" throughout the year. I would make myself a better person daily. I would do what I could do regularly to get the weight off, to start making more time for me, to start going out more, to start exploring the world we live in just a little bit more. I would try loving more, loving me more, loving my kids more...
Although I know that we have experienced a lot of grief and loss in the year 2016, we still have to embrace what is to come in the year of 2017. We are still here until we are no longer here.
We are the products of our environment, we are therefore the products of our thoughts, and definitely of our actions. Let's take this time to wish each other well and continue to build on ourselves!
The only way to get through it is to go through it! Happy New Year!!!!
