Does the sky seem blue this morning?
The birds more tuneful?
Usually I'm a bit of a humbug about the whole new year thing but I woke up on the 1st of January 2013 with a extra feeling of lightness.
This could definitely be due to the gorgeous sunny morning here in Melbourne. It is almost certainly something to do with the lie in till 9 am!!! afforded to me by my two minimen (courtesy of taking them to watch the family fireworks here in Melbourne). It's also helped along by the good feelings left over from the casual and happy BBQ we enjoyed at a friend's house beforehand. Oh and don't forget the whole week my work is closed for this year. Lots to be happy about and all that has helped. But honestly, I really feel this is going to be a good year!
Still, I can't bring myself to destroy a New Year's Resolution I made when I was 8. I was hunting for one I could keep and decided 'never to make a New Year's Resolution' would be an easy life long one. Not the most useful maybe but habits are hard to break and I'm kinda superstitious about it now.
So instead I have chosen a couple of words that I would like 2013 to reflect.
Frugal and Light.
Frugal as in not throwing away money, no extremes, just a healthier way to live and more awareness of making, remaking and simple fun.
Light as in light-hearted. Greet problems with a smile and an open mind. Find that silver lining!
So whatever your words are, wishing everyone a happy 2013!
