So yes, today starts a new year for me. A year fresh with possibility, opportunities, excitement and reasons to celebrate. Sure there will be moments, days, maybe even weeks where I feel that the cosmos are against me in everything I do, but I’m lucky, a fighter and will weather the storms.
I am thankful that I’m lucky for many reasons including that I have a job that pays me reasonably well and gives me health insurance, a home to live in and more than enough food to eat. I can afford to play and I have a guy that thinks I’m mostly the bees knees. But I feel most lucky because I feel loved.
I’m thankful that I feel so incredibly loved I have friends and family whom I adore and by most counts adore me. I’m blessed that I have an extensive and supportive family (both by blood and chosen family) my health, am strong emotionally as well as physically and face challenges head on.
Feeling so incredibly lucky and blessed aside, I’ve decided that this year is going to be the Year of Thirty- Do. I’m going to do the things I really want to do (within reason of course). So many times I put things off thinking, “oh, I can do them some other time.” Well, some other time? That’s now (as much as I can)
Mystery weekend? Sounds good! Random day trips? Yes please. Adventure course? I think that sounds fun. Mail stuff out when I’m supposed to? Yes, it’s about fricken time. Ok and cleaning the apartment too.
I’m also thinking of opening it up to readers and friends to suggest things for me to try out. I’m not totally sure about this, but if you’d like to start making suggestions I’ll start thinking about it.
