Do New Year’s resolutions ever feel like an ultimatum to you? Do you dread trying to live up to the ‘hoped for’? You are not alone. Lately each year new has brought with it a sense of.. duty, obligation… a bar that I cannot reach. How do I make significant changes to be a new person this coming year? How do I even begin changing who I am?
Maybe I am over thinking this. Because each January first I am literally a year older than I was the day before. But, sit with me for a moment. The effort to evolve, and to change who you were, seems like a heavy burden. I am all for change, I am all for growing. I think the standards by which we measure ourselves can often times be a stumbling block to tru lasting change.
