Instead of making, and not keeping, a whole bunch of resolutions, this new year I’m doing something different. I am going to focus on one thing and one thing only for the new year.

And that one thing is acceptance.

Specifically, I’m going to break the concept of acceptance down and apply it to three main areas of my life. The first area is my current circumstances. The second is the past. The final area is myself. But before I delve into these areas, you may be wondering why. Why is acceptance the sole thing I’m choosing to focus on?

I’ve been thinking for a while now about what makes me happy in life. I have to admit, I’ve gone through all the cliches you can think of.

A bigger house? Bought it. And I love my house. It’s beautiful. It feels homely. I feel safe here. 

A great job? Got it. I am fortunate that I wake up each day and I genuinely look forward to going to work. When I get there, I work with wonderful people. I’m stimulated, challenged, get to learn, grow, develop – and ultimately, achieve some great results.

People? I’m very fortunate there too. I’ve got a family that I love, a partner who I adore and a small group of truly amazing friends.
