2021 Resolutions

Posted on January 6, 2021


Actually, I don’t do resolutions any more since they don’t work for me. I used to start of all gung-ho with my list of New Year’s resolutions. By January 3, they were forgotten. So, I’ve been doing something different. Every year I pick a theme for that year. The plan is for my actions to revolve around that theme.

This year my theme is gratitude. 2020 was an awful year, we all faced losses, whether it was loss of loved ones, a job or freedom.

2021 is going to be another tough year. We can’t change that, but what we can change is our attitude. This year, I choose to be grateful for all that I have.

I am grateful for:

  • My health and the health of my family.
  • My stable housing.
  • Enough food. Every day, the newspaper has sad stories about people going hungry, right in our neighborhoods!
  • My ability to help others.

Every day, the first thing I will do when I wake up is think of one thing I am grateful for.

What about you? How will you make 2021 different?
