How come there isn't a whole collection of songs about starting a new year? If there were, I would listen to it today!
I don't know what it is about turning the page on the calendar, but I just love it. I love the possibility. A brand new 365 days stretching out before you waiting for you to take charge.
As you might guess, I'm a resolution girl. I don't really call them resolutions, but I'm not sure that the semantics matters. When the new year starts I like to set out a plan of sorts. Some things I'd like to accomplish.
For 2013, my goals can be lumped into two categories:
I want to work on being kinder to myself.
I wrote a bit about it in my last post, so I'm not going to belabor it here. I'm kicking off a new happiness project, a la Gretchen Rubin. I'll reboot the other blog tomorrow. The theme for January is "self-care."
The other goals can be summed up in something I've decided to call "The Year of Less."
I want to focus less on accumulating things. I want to spend less. I want to be attentive to needs vs. wants. I want to reduce clutter. I want to complain less. I want to waste less. (Time as well as money) I want to look more into what is important. Faith. Growth. Relationships.
Something awesome is just around the corner... Can you feel it?
