As 2013 comes to an end, we often find ourselves reflecting on our lives and the events that occurred over the past year. There may be some things we made be proud of, and others, not so much. People love to set goals for the new year as well as lofty resolutions. I used to set resolutions for myself every year but felt very disappointed in myself when I couldn’t keep the resolutions. I found that it was a set up for a sour tone for the rest of the year. So, about two years ago I decided to scrap the resolutions and just try to become more of what I already am. There’s always room for improvement in every aspect of one’s life so I just focused on being a better friend, daughter, wife, doctor, etc. You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish just by increasing your awareness. Lastly, take advantage of a fresh start by truly making the most of all of the opportunities that are presented to you. By learning to appreciate your current blessings, you will further enjoy the new blessings that are yet to come.
Happy New Year!
