I can’t quite believe 2018 is nearly over and a new year is about to begin. I love this time between Christmas and New Years because it is usually slower and gives more time for reflection and relaxation. The holidays are wonderfully (and often chaotically) busy, so having a few days to regroup before getting back into the swing of things always feels important and healthy.
Personally I am not a huge resolutions person, in large part because I don’t think our commitment to bettering ourselves should be any different on January 1st as it is any other day of the year. I do think, however, that it is important to spend a bit of time reflecting on the year that has passed and what you want to bring forward or leave behind as you enter into a new one. For me a big one is going to be to continue to work towards connecting to my people and myself in ways that fill me up instead of in ways that just burn time. I can find myself losing time to things like social media or texting when really what I am craving is a real conversation with someone. Another priority needs to be having time to myself to read, nap, bake or do anything else that fills my tank. Whatever it is for you, I hope you spend some time thinking about it and then finding ways to prioritize what matters most to you heading into 2019.
Before I wrap up, I want to thank you for letting me join you on your journey this year, whether that be just here in my relationship blog, or if I am fortunate enough to know you personally. It means a lot to me to connect with people as they work their way towards healthier and more meaningful relationships with themselves and others.
Wishing you the most magical end to 2018 and a connected start to 2019. I look forward to connecting more in the New Year.
