At the beginning of a calendar year, it is known that lots of people like to set resolutions, things they want to do differently in the coming year.
And then, usually within a month, all those resolutions break. Or at least this used to be my story. Now I just don't make resolutions anymore.
Instead, I stick with one, life-long goal: Be a better version of me than I was in the past.
Some days feel like definite backslides. Other days it feels like I'm miles ahead of where I was. Most days, though, I try to smile more than frown, be kind not critical, and always presume positive intentions.

I'll admit that it was (and still can be) a very challenging task. In a day full of smiles, the one frown can pierce my gut like a sword, and sit there for days. It's so easy to perseverate, even though I know it doesn't help at all, instead, giving me perpetual stomach issues.
This Week's Tip: try to find three positive moments in your day, and hold on to those for dear life.
