Like a clean slate, it seems full of new beginnings and endless possibilities. You might use your gym membership, drink less, start a company and take charge of your fate. Or something else you haven’t foreseen.

You sit down with a blank sheet of paper and pick up a pen that’s been waiting to be used for so long, it dried up in the meantime. Remember the last time you sat here, brimming with ideas for the new you? In between then and late January, you ditched the lot.

How about you deem the old you good enough this year?

  1. Nice thoughts. The problem with resolutions is that I/we don’t think of ourselves as good enough. I think the consumable culture we live in encourages this. If I thought of myself as good enough, maybe a higher percentage of the goals I set would seem easier or more enjoyable to meet. The goals I set and don’t meet sometimes seem like the fuel I need to consider myself as not good enough.

    1. I think you’re spot on – we’re always encouraged to set ourself more goals to get better, which seems to suggest we’re not good enough. Even if goals are reached, we’re then told we need new ones.
      I like goals, but I’m trying not to let them run my life…

      Happy New Year 🙂


  2. I don’t make ’em. Don’t like to set myself up for failure… Nice to meet and read you, by the way.
