Happy New Year, everyone! I hope this is year is the best year of all our lives so far!
We talk about resolutions at the beginning of years, right? We set goals for ourselves. I had a few of these in previous years too. But I am in a different kind of mood this year. No resolutions but acceptance of whatever I come across.
So, let’s rewind a bit. I was tested in 2021 with various struggles that I was not ever before. So, the first 2/3 of it was hard. The last 1/3, though, gave me a mindset I did not know I would ever be in. My only prayer these days is that I am where I am going to be most true to my nature, with respect to jobs, relationships, everything. This means I currently do not have a fixed location or job in mind, for example. Of course, I have an option that currently seems most likely, which I am working towards. But it is not a fixed destination in my mind.
This is significant because of two things: First, I was the complete opposite before. I would fixate on one option and obsess over that. Second, I realized how little I know myself and what is best for me (because things I thought were good for me in 2021 turned out to be my biggest tests). So, I decided to just give in and see what I am offered with. I am letting God take me where He wants me to be (He always does but this means I am trying to ‘correct’ my course).
So, no resolutions for me this year. Just a patient wait to see what will happen. I will see if this is a better strategy for me but it definitely is a lot more peaceful.
What are your resolutions? How do you approach your resolutions? Let’s discuss.
