New Year Resolutions

New Year resolutions are tricky. On one hand self reflection and betterment can be great, on the other hand new year resolutions force us to start the year telling ourselves we are not good enough, that we need immediate improvement at the beginning of a new year. This year I will strive to tell myself I am good enough. That my lows are just a part of me as my highs, and there is no shame in the ebb and flow of my emotions. I hope this place will be home, a sanctuary, where I can share the scariest but hopefully most fulfilling journey I will take so far in life. Today my building super was riding the elevator with me and made a joke after hitting the 2 button, “2B or not 2B, but what is to be?”. The doors opened and I responded, “perhaps it is knowing yourself”. As he got off and the elevator door closed he left one final thought, “find your spark however deep down it is”.
