Magical thinking

New Year’s Day is like a video game. On the first day of the year, you’re granted a new life.

If you asked me for my New Year Resolution, it would be to find out who I am.

— Cyril Cusack

At least that's what were taught

We make resolutions. We envision a new life – one that is better than that of the previous year. But the reality is, New Year’s Day is just another day.

Don’t get me wrong – having the ability to draw an arbitrary line in the sand and use it as a guidepost for making change isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it can be very beneficial. It’s only when we think that the day itself has some magical characteristic to evoke change.

This year I just wanna go on more adventures. Be around good energy. Connect with people. Learn new things. Grow.

— Intention

Time to reflect

Yesterday, I took some time to reflect on things I want to change in my life. From learning new skills and managing stress – to being in the moment and maintaining a high fitness level as I age. There was plenty to reflect on.

New Year’s Day is a good day to create awareness, as a means to evoke change.

And now…the ball’s in my court.
