2013...A year for new beginnings

A lot of people brainstorm about their New Year's resolutions for weeks, or days, leading up to the beginning of a new year. Others, they wait until New Years Day to make them, or often change their mind within the first few days of the year as to what they want to change or accomplish in the year.

I want to loose 50 pounds, put some money away for a rainy day, and strengthen my relationships with my children, husband, family and friends. Do these New Year's resolutions sound anything like yours?

Whether they do or they don't, maybe we shouldn't wait for a brand new year to change something; perhaps we should do it every day. Perhaps we should be grateful for what we have and who we have it with and just ENJOY life. Perhaps we should worry not so much on loosing the extra baby weight of 9 years and just exercise and eat right to be healthy. Perhaps we should stop and smell the roses and the tulips and the lilacs and the sweet peas. Perhaps we need to realize that life is too short and worrying and obsessing about whether our house is clean enough for visitors is just silly; and that relaxing and making memories with loved ones is what it's all about.

So, no matter what your New Year's resolutions are, or whether or not you stick to them, may 2013 bring you as much happiness as you allow it.
