Jan 3, 2021 - National Drinking Straw Day
Sunday, January 03, 2021
Today commemorates the date in 1888 that Marvin C. Stone received the patent for the paper drinking straw. Of course straws now come in a variety of materials. I just got steel straws to use with my travel drinking cup.
Someone shared this on a team I belong to and I found it a really meaningful exercise.
My focus words for 2021 are:
Self care - this is definitely my focus for this year. My resolutions are all about maintaining good mental health as well as improving my physical health.
Connection - to me this is ties to other people. There are a lot of people I am cutting ties with after this past year. There are more people I want to strengthen my connection to.
Change - you can't achieve different results unless you change what you have been doing.
Family - my immediate family is most important to me above all else. Especially with COVID and not seeing most of my family very much, if at all, I need to find ways to show my family just how important they are to me.
