I don't really have any new years resolutions to begin the new year with, though if I did, this would be a very long post including things like: drink more water (stop drinking diet coke), read more books (2012 was my worst book reading year in history!), visit people more, start my new shop line, use my teeth whitening strips, keep up on the laundry and many more boring things. But these things are always in my head from the moment I lay down to sleep to the moment my eyes pop open in the morning (I just seem to forget all the hours in between). So for the new year I am boiling it all down to simply continuing to try to better myself, or should I say be my best self. When I feel like I can't - do it just to either prove myself right or wrong - both of which make me happy and I will be successful even if I find I can't do some things.
I did find a few fun New Years do-dads via the internet to pass along. I am really thinking of doing this little calendar journal where you jot down moments from each day and file it away on an index card or postcard, I am sure filling it will the most random parts of your day would make it all that more fun to read later. I also like the idea of the 365 project where you document your life each day with a photo, though I am fairly sure I have that going on privately in my iphoto app on my computer. Obviously, however, the 365 project are photos with more intent. I have heard of people doing themes such as taking a photo of the same tree everyday for a year - that would be probably be lovely to look at when 2013 comes to an end. I am thinking about that one too. And here is a sweet little notecard printable to welcome the new year. I also recently ran across the blog, i believe in strangers, which shares lovely little stories of random acts of kindness, it's great inspiration for the start of a new year.
Any plans/resolutions/hopes/dreams/breaking of habits for the new year?
