So today is the start of a brand new year. Lucky 13th. :)
I've gotten the year off to a great start - three short workouts adding up to a half an hour, and a half hour walk in the bright sunshine. It was cold but the sun made it bearable. I took the loop through the park behind my apartment, and the parking lot and laneway were full of cars and people, as the tobogganing hill was packed full of families all out enjoying the sun, the snow, and just the day in general.
Both cats spent the day sleeping indoors, on the couch, in the warmth, tails tucked over noses. Made it hard not to join them, but I resisted.
One challenge I am going to try this year is to write down positive things, or things that make me happy, and fill a jar with them. Not just noted somewhere online, ephemeral data in an endless stream, but actual physical notations of the good things of life. There is so much negativity in the world, its important to make special, specific note of the positive.
Here is to a great new year.
