New Year's Resolutions: rain check!

Updated: Apr 14, 2021

The start of a new year always feels like a blank slate to me, as I'm sure it does to many of you.

It's a new beginning when anything seems possible, whether it is to find a better job, make that career change, improve your education, read more books, eat less and exercise more, find the love of your life, be kinder, seek happiness even when life makes it difficult.

This year, however, feels different for obvious reasons. There seems to be little point in making promises to ourselves when we already know we might not be able to keep them.

Nevertheless, 2020 has taught us a lot and we enter the new year a little changed. Or maybe a lot.

There’s no blank slate for me this year, rather the awareness that progress and technology cannot protect you from everything and that human life today can be as fragile as it was in the 1800s.

And so my resolution for the New Year is to make no resolutions but count my blessings instead.
