What Kind of Year Do You Want it to Be?

To begin, happy New Year!
On this first day of the year, many of us get into the list thing – making promises to ourselves for the year ahead. Usually our promises require that we make a change – for some of us big a change, for others of us smaller, baby step kinds of change. While we call these resolutions, really, they are commitments we make to ourselves.
Another way to start your year is to name the kind of year you’d like it to be. Could be you’ll name it the year of nutrition or the year of healthier habits or the year of your best painting ever or the year of planting, maybe even the year of planning.
Could be you’d like to name it the new job year or the energetic year or the year of bliss. It may be you’d like the year ahead to be your year of nurturing relationships. Possibly, you want to do something that honors something you value and you name your year accordingly.
What do you want to do with your 365 days ahead? Instead of making a list of change, think of your life just a bit differently and begin by naming your year ahead.
