Same old. Same old.

2022 has hit the calendar and I don’t know about you – but I’m no different.

I set goals – not resolutions – and came to realize tonight, that may be marketing spin.

Day one – failed. Day two – failed. Day three – contemplating if setting new goals on a specific, societal dictated norm is intended to change the world – or prove to us how fickle resolutions are.

It maybe my personality type, however, I change when my subconscious decides to change.

I can set the goals. Put up the fight. But in reality – I will change when I am ready to change. Period.

Having grown up with no bedtimes, no rules and no preconceived notions of who I was supposed to be, freedom seems to be key.

So in 2022, I commit to being free.

I commit to tapping into my inner being to decide what will change and when.

I will sit back, ponder and contemplate if the changes are even worthwhile – or if it’s me working diligently to change a being that may not need changing.

The one thing I have confirmed is that the more I push – the more I falter.

Sometimes we need to let go – to become what we are to be.

So in 2022, here’s to letting go – and becoming who we are meant to be whenever we are meant to be.
