We all know that with each New Year there are certain ‘expectations‘ that come with it. ‘Standards of Excellence‘ if you will. We’ve come to know them as ‘resolutions‘†.
Resolutions vary from the mundane to the extreme, some are highly thought out, others just a whim. There are the standards of losing weight, quitting smoking, exercise more, spend more time with the family, get that promotion, become healthier, etc, and we all know these very well. I’m not negating any of these, as they are, and will continue to be, valid, but what about those ‘out of the box’ resolutions?
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, yet now(for your own reasons and/or restraints)are held back from or does it require a bit of adaptive thought to yet BE accomplished? Is there a fear that needs conquering? Is there someone you need to reacquaint yourself with? Is there forgiveness you seek or needs to be given? Do you know who you TRULY are and do those around you know ‘you’ too? Have you ever asked another person to describe to you what they see you as, and is theirs and your own self description, for the most part, similar and in tandem?
Everyone desires to be the ‘BEST’ ME they can be. Everyone wants to reach the resolutions they’ve set for themselves. Everyone considers becoming the ‘NEW ME’. I say a new me is in the view of others. Don’t be afraid to ask others who you are. You may just find your new me in the ‘YOU’ they see, but you haven’t, until now.
