It’s June, which means we’re nearly halfway through 2015. The furious pace of time—the way it seems to wriggle its way out of our fingers before we even realize it—is a sore subject, I know, and I’m about to bring up an even sorer one: our New Year’s resolutions. Stay with me, though.
If you chose a goal or resolution for 2015, you probably did so with care and intention. But, we’re human. We forget. Life gets messy. We wander off our path, then back on, then off again. The writer Yrsa Daley-Ward recently tweeted this beautiful reminder:
“Departures are allowed, but rejoin your story.”
It’s springtime now. The trees are green again and the days are long and warm. This is a great time to reconnect with your resolution, dust it off, rededicate yourself to it. Or go ahead and revise, modify, or totally change it. Invent a new one. There are no rules. Be kind and patient with yourself. What matters is your commitment to rejoining and rejoining again this journey of ongoing self-discovery and self-care. Keep up the good work, sweet ones.
