For me, the new year is about possibilities. What may have been impossible last year may be possible this year if I choose to act when the opportunity arrives.
I find it difficult to take any promise to myself seriously if I’ve waited to the start of the new year to make it. If it’s serious enough to make a promise about, maybe I shouldn’t be waiting, right? Let’s get that baby started right now!
So I don’t spend time making promises. Instead, I reflect on the possibilities of the new year, and which ones I’ll want to pursue.
How is 2020 looking so far?
It’s possible I’ll walk more, eat less, and strengthen up.
It’s possible I’ll get more comfortable sailing in heavy weather.
You never know. It’s also possible I’ll finish my book.
I’m really looking forward to what the year will bring!
