My son asked me what my resolution will be for 2022. I told him that I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore. He seemed disappointed with this response and didn’t understand why I wouldn’t set a goal that might help me grow into a better version of myself. He’s right! However, he’s 21, so he sees life a bit differently than I do. At 50 years old, I don’t need a resolution to push me to eat healthily, exercise regularly, work more diligently, set time aside to read or paint, travel and volunteer some of my time to those in need. These are already the fabrics of my routine, as they help me reach my goal of doing what I can to stay healthy physically, mentally and enriched. My point is that I want to figure out what’s best to flow in and out of my life on a continuous basis, not just as a new year rolls in. Happy and healthy 2022 everyone!
