New Year. New Beginnings.

Written by: Joe Weeks

As 2011 comes to an end, we reflect on what we have accomplished and what we wish we could have done a little differently. This year has been significant in many ways. Wheather has been a bit different. Countries have been hit with everything from unusually strong earthquakes to it now being Dec. 31st in Boston with still no snow. The Bruins are the NHL Champions!

We have a lot to reflect on.

One thing that everyone had the opportunity to experience this year is growing one year older. We have all gained experience in life. We may have celebrated the birth of a child, or the passing of a loved one. One thing is for certain, 2012 is right around the corner and we will celebrate the beginning of a new year. The real question is, however, what will you be celebrating? What are you looking forward to? What would you like to accomplish in the upcoming year? We all have our New Year’s resolutions. We may wish to become more organized in our lives, or lose unwanted pounds. I ask, however, that you try to reflect on yourself and on your family. Take the time to see how you treat yourself. In the past year have you neglected yourself in any way? If so, maybe it’s time to be a little more selfish in the year ahead. Treat yourself more. Maybe try to define what is important to you in the new year.

How do you want to define your life?

In this new year, I request that we begin by asking ourselves what is important to us and how we would like to see ourselves going forward. Here is a three point tip moving forward into the new year. Do it and see how it feels.

1.) Define what you view as important to you (i.e., Do you value yourself? Do you value your family?).

2.) If there are things in your life that you would like to change, things that you feel you would like to do differently, write them down. Write out what you would like to change and how you plan to change it.

3.) DO IT!!! Don’t let external excuses bog you down. You can come up with a million reasons to not do something. How about we forget that! No excuses. Just do it. If it’s important to you, than why would you put it off?

Challenge yourself this new year and make the best of it. Regardless of how you feel 2011 treated you, you have the power to treat 2012 any way you want.

Good Luck and Happy New Year!
