It’s taken me a couple of weeks to ease into the new year. I wanted to give myself the time and space to reflect on 2017 before getting into the 2018 mindset. Over the last couple of years, I’ve started to do a few various end of year/new year activities that have become my traditions.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve grown averse to making New Year’s resolutions, as it’s a sure fire way for my all-or-nothing mentality monster to rear its ugly head and just wait for me to lose steam before altogether failing. Instead, I’ve gotten into the habit of ending a year with releasing things that are no longer serving me and showing gratitude for everything I was given and accomplished over the past year. Still, I’m not completely opposed to the concept of new beginnings for a new year.
