I’m not one for resolutions. Two years ago, I shared how I was breaking away from the 365-day deadline and opting for more of a long-term perspective. And I still stand by that. But I can see the appeal in setting short-term goals that build towards the proverbial bigger picture. To help shed light on making resolutions that stick, here’s Dr. Sanam Hafeez, a NYC based licensed clinical psychologist. Read on for her expertise.
Like many of you, I was sad to see 2010 come to a close; it was a transitional year that led to many significant changes. I left a job where I’d spent the better part of my career-building years to take a leap of faith in an entirely new industry, lived entirely off freelance work for a few wonderfully exciting months, and started Bubbles & Ink, my favorite creative outlet. If you’ve ever even glanced at the words on this page, I am truly grateful. The hope that anything I write matters even remotely to anyone is what keeps me going. Nostalgic though I am for the year we left behind, it is with nothing short of eager anticipation that I welcome the pristine hope attached to this new year. May you all fill 2011 with the sparkling moments you deserve.
P.S. That cake was actually still delicious after one year. I knew I’d made the right choice when I hired Elegant Temptations!
