Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers and blog-lovers. Let’s commend ourselves for making it another year. You did it!
2021 was full of mountains and valleys. Lovely and lamentable times.
The New Year invites us to write the first page of a new chapter. Whether you believe in resolutions or not, this is the time of year we’re all thinking about how we want the next year to go. Here are a couple ideas from Nietzsche that resonated with me as I head into the New Year.
Nietzsche believed that any value, when taken to the extreme, begins to undermine itself. And in the cases when it doesn’t, it starts to devalue other parts of your life that are important to you as well.
If you’re like me, you dive full force into things. I’m either all in on my goals or nothing. I either commit 100% with no breaks or the complete opposite. This year I’m keeping Nietzsche’s ideas in mind and striving towards balance. We all deserve a break sometimes. Then we can come back refreshed and full throttle. A break is better than getting burned out.
Balance is key.
Let’s keep this in mind while planning next year.
Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions? What are some of your goals for the new year?
