New Words for a New Year


I don't really 'do' new year's resolutions. Maybe with age comes wisdom, because I've found over the years that I really don't keep my resolutions. This year I had an opportunity to meetup with some fabulous people and review what happened in 2015.

It was a pretty good year, what made it great though were all of my dear friends, family and the amazing people I met along the way. What was rough about 2015 was my own self-doubt. I didn't believe that I was pretty or good enough in so many ways. 

I'm adopting a word for 2016 and love will be the word that guides me. Love of myself, love of my friends/family, love for my community and romantic love. 

To start my year off right I got myself the Desire Map Planner which has been great for getting me motivated. I pulled out my old fountain pen and I've been writing more. I don't know what it is but hand writing (even though my handwriting is illegible) is definitely making me feel more creative. 

I wish you a very happy new year. What are your resolutions? Or your word for the year? 

Oh and if you are looking for some inspiration I highly recommend listening to Tom Waits (whom I adore) read a poem by Charles Bukowski.
