Happy New Year

Bird in flight

I’ve decided to do things a bit different this year, to make sure 2014 is a

Happy New Year!

 I’m going to meet this New Year with a child like sense of wonder, instead of focusing on the things I need to change.  I’ve lived most of my life looking forward to what was going to happen in the future rather than enjoying the moment.

But, with a New Year brings a renewed soaring spirit within myself, knowing it’s never too late to change to be the person you were intended to be.  I am embracing the New Year with a zest like never before.  I am looking forward to celebrating every little moment my life has to offer.

I’ve come up with a list of all the little things I look forward to doing during the wonderful year we call 2014.


Watch the sunrise, at least once a month.

 Always have fresh flowers in the house.

Keep only positive thoughts in my head {this is a tough one}.

Go to brunch.

 Visit at least 2 museums.

Be nicer to me.

Go on a picnic at the park.

Sing loudly everyday.
