2020: The Year To Renew Ourselves!
What are your New Year's Resolutions?
By Estel Day
I just love the turn of a new year! After vacation and downtime during the holidays… every year gives us a fresh start to reinvent ourselves and get closer to becoming the ultimate person we want to be! What are your New Year's resolutions? Who will the new you be?

This is a wonderful time to write down new goals, envision new horizons, and raise the bar! I grew up with my grandmother Jan Day who believed that everyone had the right to reach any goal without limit. This has always been one of my favorite quotes by her because it makes me question “what ARE my limits”? We all place limits on ourselves consciously and subconsciously. Every year I try to refocus and raise the bar for myself, letting go of old beliefs which hold me back and reinforcing new ones which will lift me to new heights.
One of the best ways to get rid of old unfavorable habits is to direct ourselves into new experiences. Sometimes “new” feels uncomfortable but “new” always evokes change and opportunities. Every year I remind myself of this and write down experiences that I would like to have, goals I would like to reach, and mountains I would like to climb, metaphorically speaking! Years ago I read a book, “Write It Down and Make It Happen”. Ever since, I started writing down my goals and wishes in a journal. Writing down new goals has a magical effect, it makes ideas more tangible, and in essence it is the first step to making it happen! One of my favorite parts about doing this exercise is going through old pages in my journals years later and having a sense of pride when most of the dreams on my list that seemed impossible at the time... actually came true because I kept pursuing them more and more each year.
Moving on into 2020 let's remember who we are, where we are going, and most of all, let's climb higher than we ever have before. After all, we all have that right, let’s use it!
