Every year for as long as I can remember, has always been better than the proceeding one.
I have a feeling this has a lot more to do with an increasingly positive outlook on life and simply being a year older (and hopefully, wiser) than anything actually more spectacular happening during the course of the year.
LIFE IS GOOD and I feel eager to embrace it and find the beauty in each moment now, rather than whenever the next goal or item on my checklist arrives. Some times those things don’t come, and when they do, it doesn’t necessarily mean my life will be any better.
So without getting really all that philosophical or “deep”, I am entering the new year feeling energized, ready to tackle new projects and be more present and accessible to my children, family, friends, and others I encounter. Some simple goals include reading and writing much more, creating when I feel inspired, and getting my business defined clearly enough to really resemble me and what I have to offer.
I am ready to dream big, give big, simplify and get re-organized in order to make time for the things that really matter.
Part of this has included stepping back from social media and trying to focus more on what is in front of me. When you disconnect it seems like you will become isolated, but I have already found that it opens up more connection with those closest to me.
Because moments like this one are what I want to be present for:
This year, I want to live each day as if it were truly the best day and as if a new opportunity could be around every corner.
Wishing you a Happy New Year and hope you are inspired to be the best YOU have ever been.
