I am loathe to write a 2015 New Year’s resolution. Not because the air waves are clogged with endless goals but because…it’s just another day! I know goal-setting is expedient to achieving many accomplishments but when it comes to life goals, shouldn’t you be aspiring to be a better version of yourself everyday, anyway?
As 2014 accelerates to a close and we prepare to herald the New Year with our many resolutions, the specter of failure and disappointment looms for many. We set out resolved and determined to accomplish many goals. I heralded the New Year with a new mantra, “Attack your day with enthusiasm.” By July, enthusiasm got bored and started attacking me instead. By October, I was hard pressed. I wouldn’t have recognized enthusiasm if it sat on my face.
