Happy New Year!

Page 1 of 365. New year, new start. Just another day. Goodbye, 2016! Resolutions, traditions, promises, dreams.

Where do you stand on feelings about moving from one year to the next? Personally, I love the buzz of fresh energy around me and hearing about others' dreams. I also understand and focus on remembering that January 1st is not the only day to begin making changes, especially ones that will last - but the group mentality can encourage planting the seeds for changes you would like to make in your life.

For 2017, I have decided to not focus on creating specific resolutions but instead have set an intention, to simply be more intentional in all that I do. To focus on being true to myself and to my dreams, working to develop both and not squander precious time away.

One way I will be working on this is through this blog that you are currently reading. I envision using this new tool as a resource to branch out and build my community, reach out of my comfort zone to share the vulnerabilities of life on a larger scale, and maybe, just maybe - to inspire others to do the same thing.

The way has been prepared. The people you are to meet will be expecting you. A new journey has begun. Let it be magical. Let it unfold. ("Journey to the Heart", Melody Beattie)

I would love to hear how, if at all, you ritualized this new year. What is your word of the year, your intention(s), your resolutions? How do you see yourself committing to it? Comment below and let me know!
