Two more days left in 2018! Then it’s time to welcome a new year. Traditionally I make my resolutions, get my hopes up that things will be different and then for some reason things never seem to progress or change fast enough for me. Isn’t that crazy? Isn’t this way of thinking the same as wishing my time away?
This New Year’s Eve I’m going to try something different. I’m going to recognize all of my accomplishments for 2018. I’m going to open up the journaling I have written for the past year, read it all and follow that up with a happy dance to celebrate all of my achievements.
Every year I think we all want to be better people. I know that I put pressure on myself to get to the gym, eat healthier, read more self-help books.
I’m going to make 2019 different. This feels like the perfect year to get outside more and try new activities, even if it’s just calling up a friend and going for a walk. I’d like to get more adventurous in the kitchen and start trying new recipes. That could mean coming home from work early to prepare a meal that is out of this world on a regular old week night. Reading for me this year will be about stretching my imagination. Escaping into far-away lands and getting lost there. I want that same feeling I had as a kid reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Hmmmm, maybe that’s the book I need to start with.
For me this year is going to be about taking chances, creating beautiful things and having lots of adventures. Really thinking about how my life experiences can enhance my work. These experiences will come through in my jewelry design, my blogs and my videos.
I’m excited about enhancing my day to day life with intention and filling each day with positive energy. It takes work to live in a place of gratitude and positivity. The more of us who hop on the bandwagon and do it the better we are for each other.
Sometimes all I have to do is think about the people I surround myself with and I feel proud, supported, loved and limitless. This is the pixie dust we all share with the ones we love. Let’s keep those good vibes alive no matter what may try to knock us over.
Not only can we do it for ourselves, we can do this for each other!
Happy New Year!!!
Stay tuned to your email on New Year’s Day! I have a fun little surprise for you! It’s all about taking chances and starting 2019 with sparkle!
