Happy New Year!
Well, a new year is upon us. Where did 2012 go? And how did it go by so fast I wonder. While part of me is still asking that question, the other part of me is glad that 2012 is over and a whole new year is upon us. A fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning.
While, I’m not usually one to make New Years Resolutions, I do love the fresh start. New files (and my P-Touch labeler just quit right in the middle of printing a label, I tried not one but 4 sets of new batteries and still nothing! This is a office supply junkie’s nightmare! But I’m trying not to panic….”Breathe, Breathe”…Staples should have lots of label makers on sale this week so I’ll get by I’m sure. ) New calendars (yes, plural. I have several; wall calendars, desk calendars, electronic calendars – I told you I’m an office supply junkie so this really shouldn’t surprise you)
The last 2 months of 2012 have been so chaotic and stressful and busy beyond belief but also beautiful in a way; I have a family member who is dying and it has been a process that has helped to refocus my priorities about life and family and what is really important. Like a compass pointing to true north, the reality of death has a way of sorting out the important from the trivial.
And so, I am craving normalcy. Getting back to a normal routine and schedule. The new year does this and so I welcome 2013 with open arms.
And yes, I do want to do more this year. I resolve to blog more frequently, and to interact more with you, my blog readers. And yes, like so many others I resolve to lose weight. Certain health issues cause me to gain weight with unprecedented speed when I’m not taking care of myself and I haven’t taken care of myself these past few hectic months. So if you too are looking to lose weight, let’s do it together this year and hold each other accountable. Let me know what you are doing and let’s lose weight together.
So here’s to a new year; may it bring you & yours health, happiness and a smaller pant size!
