I love the New Year.

The New Year my time to take stock of my life, to reflect and renew. But this year I really didn’t feel then need for the whole “New Year New You” deal you see at the beginning of a new year. At 42 years old, I’m getting to the point where I am really beginning to like me!  For me, my 2016 “resolution” is simple.


That’s it. With that are all my little goals of course – being more organized, learning some new skills, being more healthy by being more committed to exercise, so on and so forth. All of it with the simple end goal of being able to simply enjoy more of this lovely little life of mine. More date nights, more laughter, more game nights, more weekend getaways… less sweating the small stuff, worrying about things that really don’t matter, or stressing over the superficial. To take time to not become a “new” me, but to rediscover the real me inside. To let that happy go lucky adventurous me out a little more. To nurture the part of me that is ambitious and capable. To get more organized for a ink-ler day to day. To develop the many talents and skills I’ve been blessed with. To learn some new skills. To help my body match my spirit. To become the most authentic and honest me ever. To share the blessings of my life with those I care about.

As look back and reflect on 2015 I am happy to say it ended even better then it started… There is always room for improvement and the start of a new year is always refreshing.  It’s a good reminder of what is truly important. Sure, we all have a life to live. Laundry needs to be done, bills paid so on and so forth. But that is NOT it. There is more, so much more. And this year…I want to live it!
