Happy New Year!

A brand new year to persevere

Happy New Year! Can you believe how quickly 2021 flew by?

Did you have a chance in December to reflect back before the year ended and tally all you accomplished?

Were you pleased with your findings? Each year seems to escape from our clutches faster than the last, and keeping track can keep us on point.

 Keeping track can keep us on point

When I was young, I believed I would hit a specific moment in adulthood where I’d know it all, have it all, and the only thing left would be to coast for the rest of my life. Does this sound familiar to you? Can you also relate to how nothing could be further from the truth? If anything, I’m left with more questions. I strive every day for “more” in all its forms, and coasting is not in the cards. Though my inner child would disagree, all of this uncertainty is a good thing. If all we had to do was exist, then we might as well be a footstool.

But I digress. It’s 2022 and time to look forward and create your best year—so far. Do you have resolutions you’d like to keep? Dreams you’d like to develop or wishes you’d like to come true? I bet you do, and I know I do too.

The challenge for many of us is in the “doing.” The follow-through. Getting up and showing up. We’re taught to believe things like: “Maybe she’s born with it” (Maybelline Ad), but the reality is: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence." ~ Calvin Coolidge

The task before us is to apply what we learned from the years we’ve put behind us. What resolutions, dreams, and wishes came to fruition? Take what serves; leave the rest behind. Gather determination and consistency, and bring a solid plan to every day of 2022, whether at work or at play. (Never stop having fun!) When you focus on something, it grows, you develop, and change happens.

Let’s leave behind what failed in yesteryear. Things like procrastination, fear of the unknown and what others might think, or the belief that there’s always tomorrow. Live for today. It’s the only place life happens and where all your hard-work triumphs, so don’t miss out!

Write that to-do list for the new year today. Plan so you can look in the mirror on December 31, 2022, and discover a new you. Grab a pen and a journal—to-do lists are more gratifying to check off this way!—and get started. Good luck and enjoy the epic adventure that is your life!

Be well,

Kathleen
