Celebrate the End of 2020 With Resolutions for a Fresh New Year

December is the season of celebration. We don’t know how you all feel this year, but if it’s anything like us, we’re REALLY looking forward to starting fresh for the new year!

Regardless of the holiday you celebrate, December is a wonderful time to remember what we are grateful for and look forward with a fresh outlook on the coming year. 

Here’s some good advice we’ve found about setting resolutions:

  1. Think about what you would like to achieve in the new year.
  2. Set your resolutions, but be realistic and precise.

New Year Resolutions from the Blue Rose FoundationOur 2021 New Year’s Resolutions


    • Be present and thankful for daily gifts, like being about to watch a family movie all snuggled up on the couch, or taking a walk with the dogs and the family in the outdoors. 
    • Enjoy the little things, like the baby oranges that are in season for the holidays! 


    • Start a daily gratitude practice.
    • Put my phone down and be in the moment with my children more.
    • Start that daily exercise ritual I’ve been talking about since my kids were born (9 years ago!).
    • Show my friends how much I appreciate them either with notes and other little gestures (and visits, when we’re finally able to get together again).

Other Resolution Ideas to Get You Started: 

  1. Create a daily ritual that brings you joy (doesn’t matter how small or silly).
  2. Start a journal.
  3. Take regular trips to visit nature – go hiking, visit different parks or public gardens.
  4. Support your local restaurants with take out orders.
  5. Start a new hobby.
  6. Volunteer regularly with a local non-profit you care deeply about.
  7. Establish monthly giving to your favorite nonprofit (hint, hint: The Blue Rose Foundation).

And if you are looking to make an end of year gift, please consider the BRF and make a difference in a child’s education adventure.
