New year. New day. New resolutions to set.
I want 2018 to be a year of exploration, both within myself and of others. To hone in on my empathy so that it helps me to help others in ways I wouldn’t be able to do in the past. To put my emotions aside and make more decisions based on fact. To say “no” when I need to and know it’s okay. To not let other people’s emotions affect mine. To live my life focusing on the large rocks and knowing the pebbles and sand will be ever changing, and always there.
Think of your life like a jar. Start by filling the jar with large rocks. Then pebbles. Then sand. Each time the jar gets more full but it all fits in harmony because the largest things go in first. If the sand went in first, the pebbles and rocks wouldn’t fit. Prioritize your life that way. Spend time on the things that matter most. Then the things that need to be done. The small things will always be there to fill the gaps, just like the sand.
