A New Kind of Resolution for the Coing New Year

Good riddance to 2020:

The past year has been brutal for everyone. We’ve seen a global pandemic; a financial crisis that rivaled the Great Depression of the 1920s; a mounting mental health crisis brought about by poverty, loss and isolation; a United States torn apart by racial strife and political polarization, and a horrifying death toll from Covid-19.

In dark times such as these, we have a greater opportunity to recognize what really matters. It’s not accumulating more fame, influence or money. It’s not having more followers on social media or flashier possessions.

When all around us there is so much pain and suffering, we’re reminded of the value of kindness, caring and meaningful connections. We’re reminded that people matter more than possessions and living our best lives is more important than impressing others.

When we’re thinking of making resolutions for 2021, we need a new perspective – one that takes into account the crazy year we all just lived through.

Here is my list of 12 New Year’s Resolutions for the coming year:

1. Be more authentic – be honest with yourself and others

2. Be more skeptical – stop being taken in by con artists and liars

3. Be more discerning – learn to differentiate belief and opinion from the truth

4. Be more fact-based– stop trusting information that’s not backed by facts

5. Find your passion and live it – life is too short to waste on mindless pursuits

6. Be kind, to others and to yourself – there’s tremendous power in compassion

7. Be meaningful, not materialistic –more stuff creates mental and physical clutter

8. Do more good – leave the world a better place than when you entered

9. Take more risks – discover what you’re truly capable of achieving

10. Stop tolerating bad relationships – know that you deserve the best in love

11. Speak out more – if something bothers you, let others know. Your voice matters

12. Care less about other people’s opinions. Life is not a popularity contest!

A better year for us all:

Even if you can accomplish just a few of the above resolutions, you’ll be well on your way to creating a richer, more joyous, and more adventurous New Year! Stay safe, stay smart, keep your heart open and your mind sharp.Happy New Year to you and yours.
