There's something motivating for me about the start of a new year: an opportunity to renew commitments to what I want in life and to cleanse myself of the things that might not be working.
I often find that I'm very motivated in January and somewhere along the way I let my specific goals fall to the wayside...but as we celebrate the Jewish New Year this week I'm finding it to be a nice opportunity to revisit and reexamine my "resolutions."
The Jewish New Year follows the lunar cycles and speaks to so many levels of connection (particularly female). The subtleties within the lunar calendar are challenging me to scrap the word "resolutions" and instead work toward refining my intentions for the rest of the year. It's inspiring me to move away from an outcome-focused mindset and toward one centered around how I want to feel.
