Life experience. To experience more out of life. To get off the hamster wheel of the daily grind.
Better me. The goal is not to lose weight, to exercise more or fit into those elusive old awesome jeans in the back of my closet. To better me, I want to personally improve. To be in the moment, to do the right thing, to be a better wife, a better mom, a better friend, a better recruiter, to be as healthy as I can be, to learn and grow. Whatever “better me” means to me on each day. A fluid process, without strict rules to follow. A change in focus. Change is good. And if I can fit into those jeans by year end, all the better.
Save more, spend less. Reduce expenses. Use more, waste less. Spend smart.
Create. I love folk art. My resolution is to create 12 pieces of folk art this year. One project is a borrowed idea from two friends that scrapbook the year as they go, instead of creating files and storage boxes, my first creation will be a 2013 family scrapbook.
Write. I read somewhere last year that in order to be a better writer, you need to write every day and a blog was suggested. I started the blog, but with 9 posts to my credit, that is hardly a daily exercise. I promise I won’t go into minute detail of my day to day living. The topic range will vary from poems to creative writing to memories to rants. This is day 1.
Give. With intention. With purpose. When in doubt. Give time, energy, money, talents. Give.
Happy New Year! I wish everyone the best life has to offer.
