Be it resolved…

I’m not much of a one for New Year’s resolutions. I don’t know why. It’s a terrific idea, after all, to take stock and evaluate and try to make changes. Maybe I should resolve to make a resolution?

Anyway, I do have this New Year’s Day thing – maybe it’s a little superstitious…I like to spend the day doing things that I hope I’ll do throughout the year. We started off with a bang, well a splash really, as the five of us trekked over to the beach to watch Sam jump into Lake Michigan.

Later, my mother questioned whether he was having his mid-life crisis, but I was so inspired! It was so brave! and crazy! I hope to be bold this year too.

Afterwards we spent a really fun time with my parents. Then we went ice skating. I went to the gym. We had dinner with friends and hung out playing guitar and singing. Nothing life-changing, but everything very life-affirming.

So no, no “stop procrastinating” or “eat healthier” or “be more patient” for me this year, although those would all be fine goals. Instead I’m hoping for a year of family and friends and music and fun, with maybe a little craziness thrown in.

I hope your New Years are off to a good start too.
