new year

Happy Newest of Years (and Blogs)

It’s that time of year again; the new time when we all decide what new things we want to accomplish with our new lives- and the reason I have created this new blog. Why? Because new is a great way to start.

I started a blog in September of 2013 with a great initiative. I posted twice for the first two weeks. Then a month’s time went by before the next post. Then another month. And now it’s the new year and I had not posted nearly as much as I had wanted to.

So you are witnessing part of my new year’s resolution. I don’t have a name for the resolution that this blog falls under, but I think it could be categorized under “Following Through”.

Really though, I am excited for each day of this year. It was December 31st, 2013 that my friend Gayle posted something on Facebook that really stuck with me. It was one of those generic pictures people put text on, usually something meaningful, like “Only You Can Be the Change”. You know, those lame things you tend to scroll by? But this one was awesome:

“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one”. I really love this. It may just stick with me because I love to write, but how great would it be to contribute something each day that at the end of this year will count and make me proud to be who I am, and make up my little book of life?

I was worried that by this time I would have uncontrollably failed at my resolution(s), but they are sticking so far. It’s a change of attitude for me, really. And I refuse to look at it like this time of year is the only time to start anew. Our perception of time is so limited, anyway.

So, out with the old and in with the new, my friends. I am looking forward to this year and what each day will bring.
