The beginning of a new year brings about the possibility for new beginnings. It’s refreshing to hit a mental “restart” button, and set new intentions and goals as we reflect on our lives with a fresh pair of eyes. As you look to create resolutions for this new year, you may find it easier to create your resolutions than keep them.
It feels as though we have been bombarded with tragedy after tragedy. From natural disasters affecting individuals in Texas, Puerto Rico, Florida, and Mexico to a mass shooting in Las Vegas claiming the lives of 59 people and injuring over 500. The heaviness and heartbreak pouring in can be overwhelming.
Your selflessness, your ability to be there for others when they are in need is a quality sought out by your friends and family. Your caring demeanor, reliability, and trustworthiness are all part of what makes you so special. You enjoy giving and doing for others but frequently struggle with filling up on self-care of your own.
