I'm actually quite happy to be starting a new year. I'm so hoping it will be the magic spark to lift the funk that has been permeating my life for the last month. I had actually decided that I was going to forgo setting goals for the new year this time around, but then I read Carl's post. Something he said totally inspired me. And I've decided to make it my one big goal for the year:
Live each day.
So simple, and yet so totally brilliant. Every day matters, and I will make it my mission to make sure I don't miss another one just trying to "get it all done."
I really, really, really did NOT want to do it, but I finally had to admit to myself that I just couldn't catch up on my blog reading after being out of the loop for more than a week over Christmas. Yep, I hit that damn "mark as read" button. :( Seriously, does it make everyone else as sad as it does me when you have to do that?
The last couple months, I got really bad about reviewing books. And I figure I'll just make a fresh start of it for the new year. With one exception. I finished Looking for Alaska right before Christmas, and I just have to talk about that one. Also coming soon, a look at all the challenges I wasn't supposed to be signing up for. ;) And a look at all the books I got for Christmas!
May each and every one of you have a year filled with all you wish for!
