Resolutions & Responsibility
The New Year is upon us. What will 2022 bring? The simple answer is that no one knows. Hopefully, though, we can start the new year off right by committing time, effort, and mindfulness to ourselves and the things that matter most to us. That’s right! It’s time for resolutions.
Here at Responsibility.org, we know that resolutions (like conversations) are not always about alcohol. But our emphasis on intention, mental health, and balance are part of the responsibility that each of us has.
So, whether your resolution is big or small (or medium), it can make a positive difference in your outlook for the coming year.
We asked some of our colleagues to share their 2022 resolutions. Take a look at what they had to say!
- Brandy Axdahl: My 2022 resolution is to unplug and engage - in person preferably, but if needed to visit on the phone or via Zoom so I can see and hear the people I care about most who I have only made efforts to engage with on social media during most of the pandemic. That social connection with our loved ones has been greatly missed and it’s always amazing how much even a short phone call or visit can brighten a person’s day.
- Maureen Dalbec: My New Year’s Resolution is to remember that everything is a learning experience, failures and successes alike, and to simply try to be and do better tomorrow.
- Lonnie Edwards: My New Year’s Resolution is to do random acts of kindness and be a joyful giver.
- Christiana Falcon: My New Year’s Resolution is to do some sort of physical activity for 30 minutes a day, it could be running or walking, to help out with my stress and mental health.
- Joey Ford: My New Year’s Resolution is to volunteer more and give back to the community.
- Thomas Grane: My New Year’s Resolution is to take time for myself to relax and read more books for fun.
- Darrin Grondel: My New Year’s Resolution focuses on personal investment and professional growth to enhance my capacity to be smarter, stronger, kinder, and a better overall version of myself. This will include an intentional growth plan each month working on an area of choice and an area of skill.
- Erin Hildreth: My New Year’s Resolution is to be more flexible and do more spontaneous things. I’d also like to commit to spending more time with my kids on a 1-on-1 basis.
- David King: My New Year’s Resolution is to double my bicycle mileage to 2,000 for the year.
- Katie O’Grady: My New Year’s Resolution is to get out of my comfort zone and try new food and cocktail recipes.
- Hannah Reed: My New Year’s Resolution is to make an effort to be more mindful about taking time to destress and relax.
