Facing a new year

Happy New Year!

Some of you will be extremely happy to turn over a brand new page on the calendar and start fresh. Perhaps 2014 was a rugged year. You're glad to say goodbye to it.

Others of you may have experienced 2014 as an amazing year. Perhaps even life-changing and transformational. You are filled with gratitude for what it contained.

For most of us, however, 2014 was likely a mixed bag. So perhaps we enter 2015 with a wait-and-see attitude of expectation and fear—hope coupled with the knowledge that we'll likely face some real challenges, too. It's maybe a good thing that we have no crystal ball. We don't know what's ahead.

What we do know, however, is that we want to develop our resilience and our ability to face whatever comes, good or bad. That being the case, perhaps this is a good time to reflect on those things that most help us get through all that comes our way. We can strengthen those qualities in any way we're able. What's one thing that will help you face the new year?
