Starting Fresh - The 2024 Reset

Resolutions

I'm not one to make New Year's Resolutions.

That's ciché in the circles I run in. To not do it. To act like a stubborn 2 year old in the refusal. Making it a stance. A flag to rally around.

It makes sense. Given the annecdotal evidence of how often folks fail to live up to them and how bad they feel about that failure. Why add that to your life? Why not defend against it?

The Reset

It is a new year though, and I'm taking the opportunity to do something with the change of calendar. A reset.

Not a set of resolutions. Permission to myself to start again. Not just on this first day, but for the next while. A slow movement.

I'm thinking about the way I've been doing things. The small and large habbits I've fallen into. For each thing I recognize, giving it a few moments thought. Asking myself if it's moving me towards the way I want to spend my time.

I'm not making hard and fast decisions. Just thinking the thoughts. I'm not trying to force change. It's putting the ideas in my head for when I notice I'm doing them. I'll make the decisions in the moments.
