Resolution to not make any resolutions
I've resolved to not resolve anything.
Another year over. What a year it’s been.
What will 2023 bring?
I’m not a resolutions kinda gal but here I am at the end of another year wondering what the next year will bring.
I’ve decided that my resolution this year is to not make any resolutions.
I want to continue to build on my writing. Continue to make it a daily practice. If I’m lucky I will produce some finished products but I think I’m finally able to embrace the journey of the writing itself. Or at least I am getting the hang of it, even if I still remain very anxious at times about producing finished products. Writing is a way of life and in 2023 I want to continue to live this realization.
I also want to have more fun in 2023. And more rest. And more joy. I want to travel more, I want to see more, I want to read more and play more and sleep more. I want to make more concentrated life essence: to spend my time more in being present. I know it sounds woo woo but the point is to continue to pursue more life. To work harder for shorter periods of time. To not waste my life-time calories on gross take out french fries. FRESH fries only - from the fryer, hot and piping. Only the good stuff. To continue to heal myself and help those I love in their own journeys.
I want to ask for more help. I want to spend money without fear of scarcity. I want to have more self-compassion and forgive myself more. I want to really work on beliving that rest is not earned. Really believe it. I want to have more courage to be me and to not worry about what others think. I want to read a lot more. I want to write a lot more. I want to spend more time living life even more fully.
So here is my non-resolution for 2023. I resolve to not resolve anything - I just want to LIVE.
Looking forward to a 2023 full of writing, reading, health, hygge and naps!
