Today is the first day of January (as you obviously all well know) but here’s a little secret: I hate January. It’s cold, it’s dark and there’s nothing to look forward to during it, besides the upcoming Spring. but I shall persevere this year as ever. As a new year dawned earlier today, I spent some time reflecting on the upcoming year. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. I never stick to them anyways, but I do have some hopes and dreams for the upcoming year:
That Sam and I will consistently find work that we are passionate about. (Not finding this is always a peril of being self-employed).
That we continue to grow in our love for each other.
That any grievances and heartache between either of us, our family or friends can be heeled and soothed.
That our new home will a happy one, long after it is no longer new.
That I am able to save some money, while at the same time, not stressing about money so much.
That we are able to take at least one trip abroad together.
That Sam meets more of my friends and family.
That I show him parts of America that mean a lot to me.
That I will continue to be passionate about blogging, and if not, I will not force myself to continue writing.
That I will express gratitude more regularly an readily.
That I will think more positively about myself both inside and out.
And last, but not least, that I will drink more water.
What are your hopes for 2014?
