One Resolution Worth Keeping in 2021
As this memorable year comes to a close, I can't help but be filled with joy. I know that the issues of 2020 won't just cease to plague us (bad choice of words) when we hit midnight on December 31st, but I feel much more ready for 2021.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want next year to be the same or worse - I just have much more realistic expectations. When Godzilla shows up, I'm not going to be shocked is all I'm saying. I feel like that kind of attitude will help me navigate the next 365 days a whole lot better.
Last year I had a whole slew of resolutions. I was going to lose weight and make more money - but I got it backwards. Keeping your head above water became the name of the game this year.
For 2021 I have a lot of goals, but only one resolution - to stay healthy. I have seen far too many family, friends, and colleagues fall victim to COVID-19. Nobody I personally know has died from it, but I know lots of people have. 2020 has taught me a lot of lessons, but one of the most important is that if you don't have your health it's going to be a lot harder to reach your goals. I mean, it's hard to get ahead at work if you have to stay home for safety's sake - and that's if your company offers a work-at-home option.
My point is, in 2021 my resolution will be much simpler - stay healthy. Obviously that means masking up and washing my hands as often as possible. Beyond that I'll try not to engage in too many unhealthy habits. Honestly though, if I can get through the next few months without getting COVID-19, I'll call that a win.
