“New year, new me,” that’s what we always hear. Right? Regardless if that is the correct saying or not, there still is a message we can take away from this thought. As the calendar has now flipped over to 2018, we definitely have started a new year, but most of us are still in the midst of the same school year, living in the same town, and being involved in the same things. However, we all still have the power to reinvent ourselves and present a new version of who we are.
While I was at home with my family during this past holiday season, I put a lot of thought into this concept and I couldn’t help but be reminded of my six amazing teammates. The last six months we’ve, of course, lived together, worked together, dreamed together and loved experiencing every moment altogether. We have had the pleasure to do so much, but in all of this, I instantly thought about the person I was through each opportunity and wanted to be better. Not just for myself, but for them, and all of those around me. So I began to focus on how I could be a better leader, friend, teammate and person.
Even though we may be 6 (almost 7) months into our year, it is not too late to make a change and truly pay attention to how we can improve. That same mindset goes for all of us. How can we set a goal to improve? How can we truly be better than we were yesterday, last year and reinvent ourselves this year?
Always loving and trying to be better,
