There was a long period where I did not enjoy New Years. Sure, I enjoyed the parties and excuses to have revelries with friends, but the actual event of one year changing into the next hit me with a sadness.
Try as I might, I would dwell on things done poorly, words said that couldn’t be taken back, or words that I wished I had used when the chance presented itself. Basically, I got bogged down in the regrets of the ending year.
In truth, I’m still like that. Not as much. But I do have a tendency to dwell on the regrets, and even the hurts, of the past.
That is slowly changing. I want it to change more.
With that in mind, I’m abandoning goal based resolutions for this year. Instead I’m giving myself a theme.
That’s it. In all the areas I want to move forward, or improve, the relationships I want to strengthen, the goals I want to achieve, I want to keep that one word in mind.
With that in mind, watch this space.
And Happy New Year.
