New Year’s affirmation.


Welcome, New Year. I’m expressing my resolution as an affirmation:

Make room for the New. New Mind, New Health, New Balance.

This way, I can celebrate my renewal each day by affirming it … instead of referring to it as a number on my To Do List. As something I can get to later.

It is true; I am always refreshed by the start of each year – right now, a new decade, too – I like to mark it on the first day, then ease into my resolution routine thoughtfully, making sure it’s right for me. I tell myself this. Like starting a diet on New Year’s Day, only to re-start it on the next Monday, after cheating with a holiday desert. I was a perfectionist then.

No more. I’m not perfect. What a release.

This is day four.

Make room for the New. New Mind, New Health, New Balance.
