The excitement that comes with a new year is unbelievable. You can feel it all around you for days. Eventually, though, the sparkle and shine starts to wear off and you're left trying to decide if those resolutions and goals are really worth the time and energy. For the past couple of years I've made the choice to forego lofty resolutions and dedicate the new year to focusing on being a better "me," treating others with kindness - basically, not setting myself up for failure. I've become more interested in and committed to living a fulfilling life from year-to-year than devoting myself to resolutions that I know will not be followed through with. Above are the things that I'm dedicating my focus to for 2014, and I'm quite excited!
I'm heading back to work today from my two week Christmas vacation. Yes, it's going to be a looooong Thursday. Happy January, friends!
