The Coming New Year

There is really nothing special about the change from December 31 of one year to January 1 of the next. The sun goes down, the sun comes up. However, we’ve used the change of calendars as a reason to try a little harder to do things better – hence New Year’s Resolutions.

It’s good to take time to examine how we’re doing and make adjustments. The hardest part is determining how we’re doing – we are all terrible at evaluating ourselves. We’re conveniently blind in some areas and overly harsh in others, but that’s okay. The important thing is to make the effort.

However, here’s a thought. This year, along with resolutions to eat less and exercise more, look at something you do reasonably well and try to do it better. If you’re a good listener, that’s important, give yourself credit and figure out a way you can be a better friend or a better parent through your listening. If you’re the patient soccer mom or dad who drives your kids everywhere, maybe use that time to get to know your kids and their friends better.

Build on your strengths next year as well as correcting your weaknesses.

And above all else, have a wonderful and blessed new year.
