If it's true that everyone gets to start anew at some point in their lives, today would be the some point.
Kicking off a new year brings with it hope and excitement and the permission to shrug off the regret and the dread of things we can't control. Today is like a new box of Crayola crayons; untouched.
Observations on 2013:
- I'm older and much wiser. Like it or not this is me and I've decided that me looks good on me. I'm going to rock it.
- 13 is NOT an unlucky number. My girl Frick was born on the 13th and she has brought me nothing but joy and luck ever since. 2013 is going to be a great year.
- Change is good and necessary. It may not always be easy, but its usually a good bet.
- Reflection and planning is key to life's successes. Take a moment today to write down 5 things you wish to accomplish or change in 2013. At the end of this year, when you look at them it will be with a much keener sense of self and accomplishment. Who knows? You may not only achieve but surpass those things which you wish for.
I'll be making my 2013 predictions tomorrow and I'm not quite sure what I will predict yet, but I know I'm looking forward to it.
Happy New Year and happy new YOU!
