I love New Years! I love that I don't have to decorate for it or figure out what to buy for someone. I love that our traditions change depending on where we live and who we are with, so I don't have expectations. I love the feeling of a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning.
I may have gone a bit overboard this year however. The idea of being able to start something new and keep it going is so alluring to me... that instead of signing up for one thing, I sign up to do them all!!! Projects, challenges, diet plans, cleaning/de-cluttering calendars, you name it - I'll participate! I know I probably won't stick with most of them, maybe not any of them. I will start off with every intention of seeing it through to the end; and maybe, just maybe, there will be one thing that inspires me. One thing that I love and will continue throughout the year. There is a moment, that moment when I had aspirations and inspiration, a dream of a project completed. I may only end up doing it partially, maybe sporadically, or I may just quit altogether. Then I will re-examine and analyze and then next year -- well, there's always next year!!
