Happy New Year!

I cannot believe 2015 has come and gone!  A year that I thought was going to be rather uneventful brought tremendous joy with new additions to our family and travels to places we have never been to before.  This tempered happiness was also marked with the loss of many loved ones this year — their passing constantly reminding me of how quick our time is here in this world.

So 2016, what will you be like?  There so much in the future that we cannot foretell or control.   The only things that we can truly manage are our outlook and attitude in life.  If we choose to be brave, open and loving, the future should be full of promise.  If we choose to shut down and be fearful, the future will look bleak and scary and we’ll end up closing doors to a life full of possibilities.

In the New Year, I strive to…

  • Live courageously
  • Minimize fear and hate in my world
  • Listen and trust to my inner voice more

Wish me luck!   In the meantime, I want to wish you a year full of love, joy and adventure.  Happy 2016!

    So are you going to continue your 52 weeks project?

    • Thanks, Imene! I will continue the 52 week project. Love chronicling life as it progresses. I’m glad you’re doing it, too.
