Happy New Year!
How do you celebrate the impending new year? Some people choose to host or attend parties in observance of a fresh start. Others will do their best to adhere to the requirements of globally popular superstitions: kissing someone at midnight to avoid a year of loneliness, wearing red for good luck, cooking certain foods to ensure a wealthy new year, and the list could go on endlessly.
Another common way to celebrate a new year is planning resolutions or goals to achieve as the year progresses. However, 2020 isn’t simply a new year...it’s a new decade! Now is the time to start a new tradition; this year consider focusing on a specific word or phrase.
The Moss Ball Pets™ team has chosen our 2020 Word of the Year: Care.
Caring Creates A Better World
We believe that people should focus on embodying care in 2020 because it will positively enhance every other aspect of their life. Empathic people continuously put effort into maintaining strong communities and relationships. This lifestyle then beneficially impacts everyone, especially when the care is focused on community service or assisting the public.
When you care about something and show that you care, it creates an opportunity to personally experience fulfillment and happiness. Expressing consideration about something usually encourages other people to genuinely care about something as much as you!
If you’re ready to *leap into 2020 as a more caring person, keep reading for a list of 5 ways you can infuse care into everything you do.
*February 29th, 2020 is on Saturday! Happy Leap Year!
5 Ways To Focus On Care
I know that this concept can be confusing, so remember that demonstrating your care isn’t just something you need to prioritize in romantic relationships. As mentioned previously, every area of your life could be improved by incorporating care.
★ Write It Out
★ Declutter Your Life
★ Show Your Pets Some Love
★ Care About Your Community
○ People can volunteer in their community by completing a multitude of tasks. A quick online search could put you in touch with organizations in your area that need volunteers. No matter what your skillset is, your community needs your involvement to flourish. Some people may help out by serving food at homeless shelters, others prefer cleaning up the beach or local parks. However, if you don’t have a lot of time you can always make a financial contribution.
★ Listen To Their Love Language(s)
2020 is the year for everyone to focus on pouring care back into the world around us to ensure a sustainable future. Pablo Casals, a well known Spanish cellist, once said, “I feel the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance.” Make this year significant and be prepared to enjoy a thriving new decade!
