This year was one of my favorite New Year's celebrations ever. It was perfect.
Nothing big or extravagant. Just my brother and his family at our house cooking together, playing games, dancing and being silly. No big crowds or parties or standing out in the cold, just simple fun.
I've always loved New Year's. To me, there's something magical about the idea of leaving the past behind and starting new. Focusing on moving forward, remaking yourself. Benjamin Franklin said, “Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” (Quote from Goodreads)
I didn't really make any resolutions for 2015, but I want to make this year about simplicity. To enjoy the simple things in life and cut out the unnecessary waste and clutter, to live in the moment and see where it leads.
I have a good feeling about 2015. I plan to dig in and immerse myself in my writing and other projects and I think great things will come from it!
Happy New Year, here's to a great 2015 filled with love, laughter, and hard work!
