"New Year -- a new chapter, new verse or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours" --Alex Moritt
A New Year brings infinite new possibilities. A clean slate. A reason to erase past mistakes and start afresh. We all know that resolutions don't always stick. But for a shot at real happiness, try penning a set of personal commandments (an idea borrowed from best-selling author Gretchen Rubin).
I would suggest writing them down and keeping them handy. This may make you laugh, but I have mine scribbled on a post-it note stuck to an ancient, long-expired Bed & Bath coupon. Anytime I'm stuck in traffic, listening to Justin Beiber’s 'Love Yourself' repeat itself for the 4th time in a 60-minute window, I find myself pulling out my handy-dandy list and ruminating on what's important.
Here's my list. . .to help you get started on your own:
- More adventures.
- More creating.
