Every year, year on year, it’s the same tune.

Setting new year’s resolutions, only to find them beginning to fall by the wayside by about February.

But have you ever stopped to wonder what the word resolution actually means?

A derivative of the word, resolve.

You see, resolution is more retrospective than it is prospective.

It’s about taking a look into the past, not the future.

Considering the things that you’ve essentially left unresolved and un-attended.

So the point is not to aim for something new

But to close off the year, to make space for a fresh start, a blank canvas.

To attend to the shit you’ve been avoiding, before the year is out.

Clearing the way so you can moving forward

Closing a chapter, so you can begin a new one.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
