New Year’s Focus

“Happy New Year!” I’ve heard it from many friends and family members, but almost all add,”Hope next year’s better, good riddance to 2020,” or a similar sentiment. No doubt that it has been a difficult year and for many–a terrible year of sickness and loss. I began to think about what I would like to reach for in 2021. I came up with a few words that fit the things I most want to live toward in this new year.

N-E-W Y-E-A-R

N – Non judgmental attitude. Everyone has something that they’re hiding, working on, grieving, or may be simply blind to.

E – Eager – I want to wake up eager to face the day, see new things or at least see in a new way.

W – I’ll try to write every day, if only to help myself figure out what I believe and where I stand on the issues of today.

Y – Yesterday is gone. Don’t keep mulling it over. MOVE ON.

E – Enough – I have enough and I am enough.

A – Active – It’s important to stay active. Word could be ambulate, amble, accelerate…

R – Respond -React and respond when I feel that urges to call someone, or write a note, etc. My time or that person’s may be shorter than we know.

These are a few of my “words.” Think of a word or words that sum up your wishes for the new year. I would love to hear what you come up with.
