One of my favorite words in Latin is tabula rasa, which means “blank slate.” We rarely get the opportunity to start fresh, or have tabula rasa, but that’s why I am so grateful we have the concept of a New Year. It is a built-in time during the Roman Calendar for renewal. This time of year is perfect for nostalgia, to reflect on the past, but also a time of the year where I generally see people being the most critical of themselves. Unlike all the other uplifting articles about the New Year, this one is going to keep it simple.
Have you ever had that resolution where you wanted to lose fifteen or so pounds?
Have you ever had the resolution that you wanted to be out of your comfort zone in a thrilling, cool kind of way?
Did you ever make the resolution that you just wanted to find your happy place, wherever that is?
Have you ever made a resolution where you wanted to see yourself improve better as a person over time, hopefully for the better?
If you answered at least two out of the four questions with a YES, and then hesitated from the thought of not upholding those resolutions, first of all, you are not alone. Accept the unfinished business as lessons learned, and push forward to the future. Try dancing at Arthur Murray’s. You can accomplish your weight loss goal here. You might be out of your comfort zone, but you’ll find yourself apart of a family. A happy, supportive one.
