For many of us the new year marks new beginnings, a time to put past failures behind and resolve to do better.
As I was thinking ahead into 2023, it occurred to me that there is wisdom in looking back and focusing on doing more of the things that worked in the past year.
I will admit that there were challenges and personal losses in 2022, but in the midst of it, there was growth. I also noticed patterns and practices that helped me weather the storms in 2022.
So this year, instead on working on new resolutions I will be focusing on the habits and practices developed in the past year and continue to improve on them.
Here's a short list of practices I'll be taking from 2022 into 2023
- Daily learning to live an authentic Christian life
- Being present, physically, mentally and emotionally, for loved ones
- Prioritizing relationships by building community, supporting and collaborating with others
- Practicing self-care through strength and movement exercises
- Practicing more self-care by eating well, getting rest and drinking lots of water
