Does it really matter?

Rather than a specific resolution, I like to have a theme for the year. Taking some time at the beginning to set a focus point.

By the end of 2017 I was tired exhausted. Feeling like I needed to pull a Sleeping Beauty and snooze for the duration.

But doing less really isn’t my jam right now. I’m a little too greedy, and I want every single thing I can get out of life.

So I thought about doing more of what makes me happy. But that wasn’t right either. Because spending your life chasing happiness is a one way ticket to disappointment and frustration.

What actually drains me is all the stuff I do that just isn’t important.

So I will do more. But it will be more of what matters.

Sometimes that will be happy-making, and that will be most excellent.

And sometimes it will be be hard

But I will take the hard.

When it matters.
