New Year, New Beginnings!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, Friends! I am heading into 2023 with a positive attitude, renewed optimism, and a determination to stay connected!  Join me on the 2023 journey of embracing where we are in life, continuing to grow and learn, being our feircest selves – and let’s have fun doing it!

What would a New Year be without a mention of New Year Resolutions (NYR)? And I say “mention” because it’s not going to be a long conversation! By this age, most of us fall into one of two NYR positions: (1) If I want to make NYRs I can pull out the list I drafted in 1985 (the same one I used in 1992, 2004, and once again last year)  because I still need to lose weight, get more fit, get more orgainzed, and stop procrastinating. Or (2) My NYR is to never make a NYR again.

I hear you, friends! That’s why I’m sharing here my NYR Reality FB posts – a little something to start our 2023 time together with a chuckle.

    1. I agree with you, Laura – writing it down and declaring seems to be a powerful start to moving toward our goals. You are charged up and headed toward success! And I love that you have number 8 in there – definitely need to be kind to yourself as you head down your successful path!

  2. Great post, Shel! Love your encouragement and humor. I agree that although the past year had its challenges, there were good things to be had if we were open to them. In the past year I learned a lot about being flexible and about the enjoyment of birdwatching. 😊

  3. Birdwatching?!?? I feel so out of touch! Here’s to 2021, continued growth, and more writer-buddy interaction – Happy New Year! 🙂
