It's the first Monday of the New Year and my first chance to sit down and meditate on the year that was and the fresh and shiny new year that lies ahead. I don't make resolutions, but sometimes I choose a word for the new year. This year I stumbled upon a quote that struck me as a possible totem for 2014.
"Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness." - attributed to Allen Ginsgerg
What that says to me is - Be Yourself. Simple right? I'm still ruminating on what that truly means to me and how it informs my daily life, but it's a pretty good rule to live by.
I look forward to this year, to settle even more into our new home, to make memories with my family, and to laugh a lot. I hope to play more, explore more, have adventures and cozy moments. I am excited about designing and making more, discovering some new techniques and passions, playing with ideas that have been swimming around in my head for a while.
I am ready to reinvigorate this happy place as well, more sharing of ideas and changing things up a bit. All good things!
How about you? Do you make resolutions, write down intentions, or choose a yearly word? What are you looking forward to?
May it truly be a Happy New Year to you all!
