2024 – New Year In, Old Year Out

26 December 2023

The new year is coming fast, and the old on its last legs. Thinking about that reminded me of Marcus Aurelius’ famous quote, “Memento mori,” which reminds us what being mortal means.

And none of us has managed to figure out how to get younger.

This year, instead of charging off with resolutions to do, let’s instead make a resolution to think.

About how we want to spend the rest of our lives.

About what that would look like.

About what that would feel like.

And how we might make it all happen for ourselves.

Only then can we really make the meaningful, mindful resolutions which will help get us there.

Let’s take stock of what matters most to us (and our goals are as individual, as unique, as each of us is).

Where, how, with whom, doing what, do we want to spend the rest of our limited time on this earth?

How do we get to the point where we can say, with truth, “I did what I could with what I was given to work with?”

Most of us need to work, but we can make sure that work is worthy of our time, our focus, our efforts, our energy.

And let’s not neglect our passions – we are drawn to do things for a reason, and I think we should respect that, even if the reason isn’t something we can easily decipher.

If we have a strong desire to paint pictures, to write books, let’s do that, and honor this crucial part of ourselves.

But let’s approach it – all of it, our vocations and avocations, our family lives, our friendships – mindfully, intentionally, so that we ensure no year of our lives fritters itself away and leaves us no closer to our ultimate goals.

In other words, let’s, all of us, make 2024 count!

Until next time –

Peace, happiness, prosperity, and fulfillment in 2024,
