Happy New Year, everyone! New Year’s is my favorite holiday. I love its atmosphere of reflection and celebration. I wish we had such a holiday for each new quarter—then we would have that many more chances to reflect on where we’ve been, make resolutions and wishes, get together with friends and family, and get a day off from work. 🙂
This year my main goal is to take care of myself better, starting with making self-care my first priority. Sometimes the most obvious things in life are the hardest for me to grasp: when I don’t take care of myself (by making sure my body gets what it needs in terms of rest, exercise, nutrition, fun, quiet time, etc.), I lose the ability to take care of others, fulfill my commitments, and work on the never-ending list of projects I have going. Usually it is for the sake of these three things that I fail to take care of myself in the first place. I get my priorities backwards. But this year, I’m aiming to keep my priorities in the right order.
That’s my resolution. My wish for this year is that by fulfilling my resolution and taking good care of myself, I’ll start feeling well enough physically again to do more of the things I enjoy, such as blogging! But for all that’s not in my control, I say, que sera, sera.
I’m wishing all of you who read this a wonderful new year filled with laughter, learning, and love.
