The line between December 31st and January 1st seems bigger than any other time of the year. It seems like the turning over of a new year lets you shut the door on one year and leave it in the past while opening a new door of possibilities.
While the actual line is pretty much imaginary. It is nice to feel like you have a fresh start. I always resolve to write more and about mid-way through January, I lose my steam. This year, I hope that won’t be the case.
My favorite part of this day is spending time with family and doing New Years Traditions from around the world. Not only does it make the time fly by waiting for the ball to drop, it ends the year on a positive note.
This year my resolutions are:
- Enriching my spiritual life
- Finish the house projects I have started
- Lose weight by eating better and exercising more
- Taking more time for self-care
- Making more in-person connections
- Becoming more detail oriented
- Writing more
- Traveling to new places
I am sure there are many more things to add to the list, but this is a start.
I would love to hear about your traditions and resolutions.
Happy New Year!
