Whether or not you make formal New Year’s resolutions, you should be resolved to do some

things differently in the New Year. No matter how great or poorly things went in 2017, we all

have room for improvement.

If you want to experience joy and fulfillment, maximize your potential, and impact the world in

greater ways in the year to come, here are 7 things that are required to make your New Year a

truly happy one.

#1 Unwrap the gift of goodbye: Christmas is over, but there is still one gift you have left to

unwrap: the gift of goodbye. Every old connection and situation isn’t worthy of being brought

into your new season. Walking away from what holds you back, hurts you and keeps you stuck

is the one present you owe to yourself. 2018 is your year of new beginnings. Jesus said in

Matthew 9:17, “Neither is new wine put into old wineskins. If it is, the skins burst and the wine is

spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are

preserved.” Any person or thing that cannot grow, stretch, change, be flexible or improve, must

be reckoned dead and left behind.

#2 Forget about it. You don’t have to have a true case of amnesia to forget about what’s in

the past. Just shift your focus. Don’t waste mental energy on useless relationships and

circumstances that no longer serve you. If God led you to let it go, leave it in the past. Value

your mental health and preservation by focusing on what matters most, what helps you, what

betters you and what motivates you. As Paul said in Philippians 3:13 NIV, “But one thing I do:

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”
