Say goodbye to 2022 and hello to 2023. If you’re like most people, you’ve taken the time to create a New Year’s resolution. There are plenty of things you need to stop and or start doing, but through it all, don’t forget to enjoy the journey.
Strive to be the best you can be without being too hard on yourself, or taking yourself too seriously. Learn to appreciate the beauty of being in the moment. This cannot be done while trying to get the perfect pictures to post on social media. It can only be done when you slow down and acknowledge everything around you.
Close 2022 out strong and be ready to hit the ground running in 2023. Set SMART goals for yourself and don’t be distracted by anyone who’s not in your inner circle. I believe you must be brutally honest with yourself while establishing goals.
If your New Year’s resolution includes tasks that you could easily accomplish right now, you aren’t setting the bar high enough. Consult your close circle of friends and begin an accountability group. One word of caution though, your accountability partners shouldn’t have the same weaknesses that you do. How would you be able to help each other when discouragement comes?
In short, don’t mistake activity for accomplishment and make every day count in 2023 by living life to the fullest. However you spend your holiday season, I hope it is productive and prosperous, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
