Eleanor Roosevelt said,
“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
The new year is here and 2020 is special because not only is it a new year, it’s a new decade! It’s a time for new beginnings, new adventures and new possibilities. Never before has it been easier to connect with others, to travel, or to just live your best life in whatever way that has meaning for you. Why not make 2020 your year to finally do some of those things you’re longing to do? If not now, when?
When we finally decide to do something for ourselves, it can be hard to choose. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Choose A Social Goal
Over time, our social circle can shrink. People get busy. Friends move away. And, we lose some friends along the way. We need social engagement at every phase of life and finding our circle can be hard. In 2020, make it a point to reach out to friends. Check out your local community center. Make it a priority to get together with friends on a regular basis.
Choose A Travel Goal
Travel is more accessible than any time in our history. Planes, trains, cars and cruise ships offer accommodations and make seeing the sights accessible for almost everyone. And, today’s assistive products make traveling comfortable. If travel is on your list, make sure you plan for the journey. Things like comfy clothes, personal hygiene products and adult clothing protectors can keep you feeling confident and secure in any setting. Classy Pal’s sophisticated adult bibs go easily from kitchen table to captain’s table and will be the envy of your traveling companions.
Choose A Family Goal
For some, their desires turn to family. Maybe you want to connect more. Maybe you’d like to visit more. Whatever that is, set a family goal and, if needed, enlist the help of a family member. With everyone so mobile these days, it can be hard to get everyone in one place. Thankfully, technology has made it easier than ever to connect with our loved ones. Set up Skype or FaceTime chats. The important thing is to connect in whatever way brings you together.
Choose A Health and Fitness Goal
For some, health and fitness are their passion and their dream. Your bucket list might include a fitness goal of some kind. Maybe you’re a tennis player or a jogger. Maybe there’s a sport you’ve been dying to try. If so, find a class or a coach or whatever it is that you need to take the step. There will never be another now, so if not now, when? If this is you, set your 2020 goal and enjoy!
Choose A Self-Enrichment Goal
For some, their goals include a self-enrichment goal of some kind. Maybe you want to learn to speak another language. Maybe you want to learn how to paint or draw. You might even want to get that degree you’ve dreamed of. Think about what it is that fills you with excitement when you think about it. Today, technology and accessibility make it easier than ever to pursue whatever passion you have. Online classes, self-study, community classes and more make learning something new available to almost everyone. Let 2020 be the year you do you!
These are just a few of the many things you can pursue in 2020. Choose a few things that you really want to do. Share the ideas with your loved ones. Make your plan and go! Let 2020 be the year of new beginnings and new adventures.
Happy New Year from all of us at Classy Pal! We can’t wait to hear where your plans take you!
