If you are joining Project 99 in the Ten Percent Happier New Year’s Meditation Challenge, you are already learning a different approach to the traditional resolutions for change that we often make at the start of a new year. Most resolutions go unmet, and we typically beat ourselves up for it. Instead, we’ve been learning to use meditation in order to develop qualities of self-love, compassion, and acceptance that can actually foster the resilience needed to take actionable steps toward progress (if this sounds good to you, it’s not too late join the challenge at the link above).
At Project 99, we are making our own resolutions for change for this year. We have, as we do every year, been reflecting on our programs and services in an effort to grow and do better in supporting our youth and community to fulfill our mission. While many of our services have already evolved and will continue to evolve as a result of the pandemic, one of the biggest changes that our community will soon see is with our website. This website will soon be completely revamped with better navigation to make it easier to access our resources. We are also committed to better and more frequent communication, both on the site and through our social media channels, in order to stay better connected to all of our stakeholders. While the shift to the new site is a big challenge, we are excited about what it will offer to our Project 99 community. Look for its debut in the new week or two.
In the meantime, if you are resolved to make an improvement of your own this year, remember to do so with love, compassion, and acceptance! And remember, we at Project 99 are here for you!
