“nothing changes day to day, but you look back and everything is different…” - C.S. Lewis
A new year and so it begins, the recycled parade of influences and influencers that tell us that by the earth completing its orbit means we are given another chance to improve our lives, change who we are, and fulfill the goals we couldn’t get to in the midst of the previous orbit. Time to hit the reset button on spending more time with family, being more positive, losing weight, eating healthy, reading more, or one of the many other aspects of our lives we feel need improvement. What b*llsh*t.
The truth is the beginning of the year doesn’t mean anything. Most people understand that time is linear but choose to look at it as cyclical. They believe that everything starts over on January 1st, when in reality, the last day of 2018 and the first of 2019 aren’t really any different. Your habits and the theme of your life lead you to where you are. You’re now in a point in your life that was created because of the things you do in day to day life.
Shift your idea away from the resolutions and instead be mindful of the overall themes that you’ve created around your life. You should enter 2019 with zero pressure on your back to do anything other than remain open to the possibility of your potential, receptive to change and ready to allow yourself to get into some mischief now and then.
No resolutions please. (mural by Leta Sobierajski for DTLA)
