Why I’m Not Making A New Year Resolution This Year | Families
I’ve come to realize that January is a very stressful time for me. It’s a time when my social media feed is full of resolutions, focus words and goals. It should be a new start, it should be a time for reflection…it’s a time for me to feel like I should get my act together.
But the problem is feeling like I need to make resolutions or goals for the year or that I should come up with a theme word for the upcoming year just isn’t working for me right now. I’ve noticed that for the past few years my favorite week of the year, the week between Christmas and New Years, has been less joyful. I feel pressure (only from myself, not from anyone else) to get my act together by January 1 and you know what? It sucks.
So I have decide that I am going to start this year by giving myself grace. What do I mean by that? I mean giving myself a break…no real goal setting, no theme word for the year, no resolutions. I’ve never really been a goal setting kind of girl anyway.
