2023 New Year’s Chamber/CVB Resolutions
An unspoken tradition around this time of year is goal setting. Heading into the new year folks like to look back at what the last year has been like, realize the things that went really well or really poorly and make plans for the future. These New Year’s resolutions become our blueprint as we step into January, and hopefully they guide us to success. We’re sharing some of our resolutions with you below; we hope you enjoy!
Ridge Shefka, Program Coordinator
“I have made resolutions, but I tend to never stick with them. I am not sure why that is because I love accomplishing goals. My resolutions for this year are to save money, be the person I know I am capable of being, live life to the fullest, maintain my weight loss and learn a new hobby.”
Bobby Reynolds, Program Coordinator
“I have never really made an official resolution or set a goal for things to accomplish for the new year that I can remember. However, this [new] year I have decided to make a couple of my own. A few of my resolutions are to take more trips both with friends & by myself. I want to act in a play by the end of the year. I also want to make a budget and stick to it.”
Desiree Riley, Office Administrator
“I make a resolution every year, and I usually end up forgetting about it by March. For 2023, I definitely want to focus more on spending time with my family and doing more travelling. I have a few trips planned for the spring and summer that I am super excited about. I think my biggest goal is creating more of a work-life balance for myself.”
Emma Faircloth, Creative & Content Coordinator
“I’ve made lots of resolutions in the past, especially when I was younger. I never really stuck to them. I think 2021 was the first time I made a resolution that I actually stuck with. I wanted to live in the moment more, so I stayed off my phone while making memories. This really helped me to stop worrying about posting everything on social media and taking the best photos to make my life look more interesting to other people.”
Here are a few of her 2023 resolutions:
- Be more courageous, confident and more conscientious in my actions.
- Do better at protecting my peace.
- Save money. I have a real spending problem and shopping addiction.
- Talk louder so people can hear me!!!
Leah Poole, CEO
“I think we all make resolutions at some point, so I’m sure I have as well. For 2023 I want to slow down and take the time to enjoy my son’s senior year of high school, and his last year at home before college.”
We hope these resolutions inspire you to make a few of your own and to make 2023 your best year yet. Don’t forget to get up, get out and #exploreliberty as you follow through with your resolutions!
