New years bring changes and challenges. For me it’s a time to reflect and reevaluate. It’s so easy to get caught up in the commotion of life, holidays, family and friends. It’s good to take a step back and look ahead to the future, holding the lessons of the past, to hopefully write a new story and create a better tomorrow.
I get stuck inside my head too often. Things over the past couple years have been shifting and changing, up until now it’s been a slow process, subtle changes and adjustments that add up over time. I’m continually amazed at how far I’ve come over the past few years, and yet, I’m still often dissatisfied at how slow the process is, that it works in shifts, rather than sudden changes.
Lately though, I’ve been feeling like maybe a bigger change is coming. I’m not sure if it’s the time of year, wishful thinking, or if there’s something more to this thought and feeling. But either way, I’m hoping that maybe a bigger (positive) change is on its way.
So far I haven’t done much planning. I don’t have a word selected, and I’m really not sure what this new year will hold. I have been doing some writing and processing though. It’s been a struggle at times, but it’s been good to wrestle with things that have been holding me hostage.
What are your hopes for the new year?
