After having written Year of Maybe, I realized, looking back, that I’ve never been much of a resolution-ist. The intention is usually good, taken from within the best of people during the brightest time of year for most. But setting a goal to be accomplished at some point over a 365-day period leaves a lot of room for err…a lot of room for procrastination…and towards the end of a year long period, those good intentions may have fallen by the wayside. Forgotten. Interrupted. Something is always taking shape in our lives despite us and because of us.

While I think it’s healthy and often times admirable, the aspirations people set forth, it just seems rather forced by the ringing in of a new year. The other side of the coin is anti-resolution, and I’m not suggesting you go that route either. By all means, live the way you know you should and treat yourself the best way you know how, but do it regardless of what the calendar says.

So, I have decided to take a centrist approach and support both sides, and with that, I am leaning towards setting weekly goals. And without the pressure of perfection. In a week’s time, I’m sure that goal will stay fresh in my mind. And perhaps the success of that week will nurture me, and I can choose to continue feeding that goal into the coming weeks.

Happy New Year to you and may you know surrender to that which you wish to change in the coming year…one week at a time.
