Happy Friday Atlassian Community!
It’s the first Friday of 2023 and even though this week was a shorter work week for many that had off on Monday to celebrate New Years Day, the anticipation of another week behind us is a feeling that can’t be underestimated.
There has been something on my mind for a few months that I couldn’t quite figure out how to express until I read an article published by fellow community leader @Teodora _Old Street Solutions_ about No Year’s Resolutions.
What is it about a blank calendar that scares or forces us into setting ‘new’ goals? From my point of view many of the New Years Resolutions come from guilt or a misplaced sense of failure that somehow the ‘New Year, New Me’ is supposed to repair or resolve. That’s not a very healthy mindset.
Instead of being driven by negative thoughts, why not strengthen ourselves with positive ones? New Years can be a time to look back on the previous year or years and celebrate our strengths, our successes, our growth. I feel we need to make more affirmations about the good things that we want to continue doing rather than focus on the things we missed the target on.
So with that in mind, please share something - a practice, a habit, a personality trait, etc. - that you want to continue this coming year. Let’s become each others personal cheering section celebrating all of the already great things in our lives and looking forward to another year filled with them.
May it be a year of peace and blessing for everyone.
