Why do we start a new year with promises to make changes?! Where did this tradition of self pressure begin?
The end of the year should be filled with congratulations for all that we have accomplished, overcome, and became.
The new year should begin with gentle reminders to be kinder to ourselves with an understanding of all the exhausting things that are thrown at us in this life.
If you're going to make promises for the new year, promise to love more deeply.
Promise to rest when needed, before our bodies force us to. Remember that you can do anything you set your mind to, just not all at once.
Let's promise to stop and drink in life as it happens and enjoy those moments that bring a smile to our faces.
Let's promise to remind ourselves that we are human and flawed but wondrously so.
Let's promise to accept that our imperfect selves are beautiful.
Why start another year with demands on ourselves? Life throws enough of those at us already.
Our wish to you for 2023 is peace, happiness, and love!
