V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #29: Transition

Setting New Year’s resolutions is not my thing. I do, however, honour the passage of one year to another by reviewing what the passing year has entailed and consciously deciding where I would like to focus for the next.

For example, as a young mother of three, having returned to work, I learned to prioritize and be more organized. What I needed in my life for the upcoming year was more fun, and so I opened myself to more opportunities to dance.

The year that I lost my career, my health, and the ability to carry out most mundane tasks, I recognized that life had enrolled me in some very important lessons. Moving into the New Year, I knew I needed to embrace surrender and acceptance.

2018 has been a very full year for me – lots to mull over. It’s time to contemplate, acknowledge, offer gratitude, and transition into a new year.

How do you approach the New Year? Do you set resolutions? Or is the flip of the calendar just another day?

I look forward to your posts.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
