The Hope Of A New Year



This pandemic saga has left us reeling. Plans once made have been deferred, postponed, or otherwise rescheduled for the unknown distant future. There have been so many restrictions and missed opportunities, dreams, and adventures. The last two years have not had the same wonderful impact of years gone by. The promise of a New Year has caused me to reflect upon the dreams I've placed on hold and the possibility of making them a reality. One dream for sure is to reschedule vacation plans and destination ideas with hopes of new places to visit, new adventures to take, and new memories to make.


There is something exhilarating about a New Year and creating new dreams and goals and the adventures they will take us on, then to look back a year from now at what we learned, how we grew, and where we ventured.


It's important to check in with ourselves and examine where we are. To take inventory of how far we've come and the progress we've made over the past year. To re-evaluate our current path and the trajectory we're on so that we can make the proper adjustments and tailor our course of action.


In spite of the statistics that tell us that 92% of all resolutions fail, we have a choice. All we have to do is decide what we want is more important than our fears, living in our comfort, and not taking risks. I'd rather look back a year from now knowing that I was brave enough to take risks, set sail, and land on new uncharted territories. To look back upon my life with no regrets, no what ifs, or what could have been.
