There’s no “end of year retrospective”. No think piece. No slideshow touting the “best photos of…” nor “10 ways that…”. There’s not even an end-of-year newsletter that is sent out to family and friends. There’s none of that.
It was an eventful year. My life is good. I’m grateful, hopeful… happy.
There are no resolutions; there’s a long-standing resolve (that follows me from year to year). It’s simply stated as “make the effort”. It’s the answer to any self-improvement related question I ask. It’s the first step in achieving a goal, any goal. Make the effort.
