In a world that constantly encourages you to change, it’s bold to be yourself.

Most New Year’s resolutions involve changing something about yourself, taking something away, or adding something else. And change is great if that’s what you want, but we’d like to encourage you to embrace yourself in 2022.

Learning to love yourself — to really learn who you are and how to love all the parts of you that feel hard to embrace — is the best New Year’s resolution we can think of.

And what makes a resolution? It’s defined as a firm decision to do something. And determining to love and accept yourself as you are is a conscious choice. Self-love, self-assuredness and confidence don’t just happen. It’s a learned practice you have to work toward every day. And it is so worth it.

The best part about being yourself is that there’s no one else who could do it. You are the only you and that’s pretty special. Welcome your quirks, the unique features of your personality.

If you’ve got something you’re into or something you have always wanted to explore, Lion’s Den has something to help. Exploring your sexuality is a great way to explore yourself. You like what you like, and you deserve the freedom to indulge in the things that make you feel happy and fulfilled. And if you haven’t discovered what does it for you yet, that’s part of the fun.

You can show appreciation for your sexuality just by enjoying it, and acknowledging that you’re in control of what it is that makes you feel fulfilled and empowered. There’s something exciting about knowing you have the power to grant yourself your own satisfaction. That’s special.

A mindset of appreciation will help to combat feelings of awkwardness or shame you might be harboring around sex. You get to be a sexual being. You are a sexual being. And you are unique in your sexuality while also being very human. While your sexuality is personal to you, it’s natural to humans. Your sexuality is something worth integrating into your mental health and wellness practices instead of isolating it.

You have to live in your body, in your head for your whole life. While you’re here, let’s find ways that make you feel alive. It’s important to find things that make your life feel like you’re living your life to the fullest: spiritually, physically, emotionally, sexually.

This New Year, focus on finding and falling in love with who you are. It’s a new year — be you.
