As I look out my window, the Christmas light maze that dominated my neighbourhood has finally gone, quickly replaced by an acrobatic horse show. I can’t help but wonder, will this be the first of many shows in the new year that will unfold outside my window? I’m excited to see what will be next.
I’m looking forward to what’s next. Most of us are done with the overindulgence of the holiday season. At least for the time being. For those friends we didn’t see over the holidays, “Let’s get together for drinks” seems to have morphed into January. I’m trying hard to be good, but it’s not easy. The thought of eating makes my stomach grumble, not to mention the guilt.
For me, the phrase “Happy New Year” comes with a bit of anxiety, saying goodbye to another year, an old friend, however way you want to look at it. Put the bad stuff into the past, learn from your mistakes, and improve going forward. A friend asked me if I had any goals for the New Year. I wanted to say, “Absolutely,” but truth be told, I have a lot of “ideas,” do those count?
How many of us have sat writing lists of everything we want to accomplish? Perhaps some may refer to this as a bucket list. I’ve decided to tackle my list since I’ve been called out on it. Yes, the dreaded “You always have ideas, do something about it” conversation. I find myself here —on my blog exploring new beginnings and embracing the possibilities of the new year.
I am passionate about so many things. So I thought a blog would be the perfect platform for expressing those “ideas,” be it travel, fashion, design, my new crush of the moment or what’s going on that sets my heart racing—or just need to get something off my chest.
And like the acrobatic horse show across the street, which another will likely replace, I, too, will wonder what is next…
