Life Evolutions, Not New Years Resolutions.

Dear Black Women is not doing the traditional New Year's resolutions. Yup, you read that right. Not. Nan. One. Why? Let's be honest. All too often our New Year's resolutions are unrealistic goals built on the faulty foundations of feeling bad about ourselves...and they often don't last. Instead, we want to explore something possibly more affirming and enduring: Life Evolutions.

Take 10 minutes to reflect in gratitude for who you have been and who you are. Then identify those amazing things about you that can lead you to who you want to become. Need guidance doing that? Start by picturing a moment when your younger self was filled with life, joy and hope, then go through the questions in the worksheet below. The best part? You don't have an artificial timeline to getting this right!

Happy Life Evolutions to You!
