New Year, New Ideas.
January 2, 2012
I found this list of rules for happiness a couple of months ago on pinterest (I think through Kate of Wit and Delight....don't you just love her??).
I really can't imagine a better, more complete list, can you?
I always have big aspirations for goals, resolutions, hopes, dreams, determinations at the beginning of a new year. I guess it isn't that surprising that come March (or earlier), I've forgotten (or blocked) most of them. But this year, this list right here feels so timely... exactly what I need. And just to keep it extra simple, I want to focus on # 4 and 5 in 2012. I think it really all starts there. Everything flows from giving more and expecting less, no? I really believe we are here to give to others.
Also, I would very much like to be here more. I miss this place. In truthfulness, when I started this blog, I liked the semi-anonymity of it all. I didn't tell very many people I knew about it. I've become a bit too self-conscious about it, but I don't want that to be a factor so much anymore.... I really likes what Blake said about blogs. I know that I most love blogs that give me a little peak into some one's life. Not the best photos, the best advice, the perfect recipes (although I like those too!). I would like to pop in here regularly for more reflections and anecdotes and ideas and snapshots from my day. I want to record this life that is happening. The good and the not so good.
2012 has a good ring to it, and I am looking forward to what is around the corner. :-)
