New Year's Day

Happy New Year!

January 1st is celebrated as the first day of the new year, a time for reflecting on the past and anticipating new beginnings. In America, especially the southern states, it’s a tradition to eat black eyed peas on New Year’s Day to encourage good luck in the coming year.

This day has also been associated with making resolutions of all the things we want to change about ourselves in the coming year.

But, resolutions can create stress, and setting unrealistic expectations can lead to feelings of failure and low self esteem.

This year, let’s choose to love and accept ourselves wherever we are on our personal journey, with no resolutions.

(Except, the one resolution I make every year, which is to remember to write the correct year whenever I write the date. That’s one resolution that gets easier to keep with every month that goes by!)

I hope that this new year brings you peace, joy, and hope. Whether or not you celebrate New Year’s,  we celebrate you, exactly as you are, no mask required.
