Happy 2013

on January 1, 2013

I love the start of the new year. I think of it as the perfect opportunity to reflect and review.

The new year is a great time to assess how life is going – am I achieving my goals? What am I doing that makes me happy? What do I want to do differently? With whom am I spending my time? Is there reciprocity in those relationships? Do I bring something positive to the lives of these folks? And do they do the same for me?

I believe in living life to the fullest – always have. A few eye-opener experiences over the past 18 months have helped me to gain clarity around the people and things I value.

I’ve been consciously choosing a life of gratitude for two years now. I’m committed to continuing this – it’s amazing how much better life is when looked at through thankful eyes.

Of all the “attitudes” we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-changing. ~ Zig Ziglar

I saw a great idea posted on Facebook. I’ve already implemented it and look forward to December 31, 2013 when I review all the great memories and experiences amassed in the next 12 months. I wonder at what point in the year I’ll need to replace the original jar with a bigger one?

Happy 2013, everyone. It’s already off to a great start with my first note of the year already in the jar. Woot!
