Resolution Redoux

Ok, I have to admit that there are few things as ubiquitous as a New Year’s resolution. Many people simply refuse to make them after the disappointment of breaking them year after year. If you were brave enough to make one this year, statistics say it will likely be abandoned by the first week in February. Ushering out the old year and coming into new does seem a natural time to reflect on our lives–where we have been and where we want to go.

Having goals in life is a good thing. It keeps our sights set on the things that are most important to us. Some people want to get out of a lousy job; others may want a bigger house or more time with kids; some want more friends or to abandon a relationship that has soured. Many resolutions fail because we get busy and often find that fixing things is not as easy as it looks.

Counseling can help when your resolution is on the verge of failing. Yurk Counseling Services is a safe, caring, and confidential place where you have a chance to work on your goals and work out the steps to get to where you want to be in life. It is a healing place where you are accepted as you are and your well -being is front and center. It is a special time, where your load in life becomes a little lighter and you have a trained professional helping you work on the sensitive subjects that are difficult to discuss with anyone else.

“Ultimately, there’s one investment that supersedes all others: Invest in yourself. Nobody can take away what you’ve got in yourself, and everybody has potential they haven’t used yet.”
