happy new year!! and hello 2012! i’m not much for resolutions anymore – they just set you up – it’s not like i’m going to wake up january 1st a magically new and improved person! which means that the same challenges i had in the previous year are going to be the exact challenges i face in the new year. (see here – one year ago i said i wanted to organize my office – huh, how strange then that i started doing the same thing this weekend!! will i ever get it organized??)
i think we forget that january 1st is just a day like any other…there’s still laundry to be done, food to be cooked, bills to pay & family to take care of. so don’t put pressure on that day to make it magical. any day can be jan 1st – why not march 3rd or june 20th? we get to choose any day we want for a fresh start!
so instead i like to take the time at the end of each year to write down all my accomplishments from the past year (small ones, big ones, they all count! because, yes, “tried new foods like passion fruit” counts as an accomplishment
so i want to invite you guys to join me & just celebrate the small victories of 2011. that’s step 1. that way we can start 2012 with a clean slate and the idea that anything is possible!!
