the new year
What do you do when one year is ending, and a new one about to begin?
Many of us have a custom we like to follow at New Year's. Perhaps, it’s a reflection on the past year, or setting some goals or resolutions for the year ahead.
As the old year draws to a close, I like to reflect a bit on what it has held for me. What did I learn? What was the hardest part of the year, and how did I respond? What was the best part of the year?
I also like to think ahead about what my new year will hold for me. Usually, this is in the form of words: thoughts, key words, and a bit of writing. This year, though, I am inspired to do something more visual. Later today, I am going to curl up with some old magazines and a glass of wine in front of the fire, and make myself a collage that represents my new year. I want to include things that inspire me, things that I want to make happen, experiences I want to have, people I want to share things with. This might become my new ritual.
As we head into 2015, I wish for you a remarkable year: one filled with love, laughter, learning, adventure…whatever it is that will light you up as you enter your new year.
