I haven’t made resolutions. Like many people this year I am focusing on goals, objectives and progression. 2015 has already challenged me and we’re only seven days in. I have no idea how this challenge will work out, but I do know that sometimes I need a little reminder that it’s okay not to know.
I read this article today, (via this post) and the final point is exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time. I think we all need a little reminding that the process of learning what we don’t want, although painful, can be the most enlightening moments of all, and also that it’s all just a process and not necessarily the be all and end all.
This past week a friend (who is going through a much tougher time than me,) remarked that I should cut myself some slack. She said that was her goal for the year, and I raise my glass to it as I think it’s an excellent policy.
With that sentiment, I’m off to pour a glass of vino rosso, get in the bath and sooth the tension out of my shoulders.
