Happy New Year

This is my favorite day of the year. I feel excitement in the air, a shiver of joy as the new year stretches out in front of me. An opportunity to learn something new, improve on something old and enjoy what I already know! I love Christmas too, but I feel so tired by the end of the season that this day makes me feel refreshed and young again. There are 357 days of shopping left! That alone makes me think that perhaps this year I might get things done ahead of time. Lol. Then again, I'll probably wait till the very last minute. I don't think it's because I'm lazy or I procrastinate too much (perhaps a wee bit), but I know it's because there is so much to do and learn out there. I'm a very curious cat by nature. I like to veer off the beaten path and see and take pictures of everything I can. By the time I get back on the path again, I'm late. Like the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, I'm always saying ..."I'm late, I'm late, I'm late". This year my resolution isn't going to be to be on time or to stay on the path more often. This year my resolution is going to be "MORE". Does that make me sound greedy. Perhaps, it is. This year, I want to have more off the path adventures, more being late because life is so full of interesting things, more of my kids hugs, more of my husband's kisses, more of being creative and especially more of being me! I look forward to every new year and I look forward to this one too. I wish for all of you new adventures in life and the time to enjoy them!
