Happy new year!
New beginnings are my favorite, because I love the idea of a fresh new (insert thing here), no matter what it is. That's why Sunday/Monday is my favorite day of the week, and it's why morning is my favorite time of day. At the beginning, you can choose to be better than you were before. I mean, I guess you could at any point decide to be better, but it feels more official (probably) at a beginning point of some kind.
I remember when I was just maybe 6 or 7 years old that I would take that quiet time at my church and actively reflect on what I could improve in my life for the next week, and which things I had done in the past week that were not so great that I could rid myself of going forward.
This year, I resolve to make at least two blog entries of substance per month. I was going to post today in honor of Penguin Awareness Day, but my January has just flown by so quickly, while simultaneously inching forward at a snail's pace, and I have not been able to organize myself very well. So I guess I resolve to be better at that, too. Let's hope!
