Hello 2013, you look lovely.

It’s 2013. Today. Thank the Lord above. While there were some notable moments in 2012, my overwhelming sentiment is that I’m so very thankful I never have to do that again. Between what seemed to be never-ending, country-wide violence, wading through the sads, and adjusting to a whole new way of life — I am, frankly, ready for a new year.

And, today, that’s what we all get! Hooray, wahoo… [jumps up and down while waving arms wildly through the air].

Part of that whole post on feeling happy has had to do with the hope I have for 2013, the hope for a better, happier, more fulfilling year living my life. The key here is “living my life”. This past year felt more like going through the motions, wading through each day and praying that the next day would be different. Which, is lame and depressing and not how I want to experience all that goes on around me. So, with the dawning of 2013 I am ready to live — deliberately.

I’ve done some work, er, some personal work. That makes me sound even crazier. I don’t know what you call it… but I’ve done some evaluating of 2012 – the things that went well, the things that didn’t. Made some resolutions/goals/intentions/desired feelings of what I want and would like to achieve in 2013. Set up  values, a theme and an action plan to take me through the new year. (All of this thanks to the wonderful Molly Mahar and her Holiday Council over at Stratejoy)

So here’s where it gets good… here’s what 2013 is about for me:

  • Health/Wellness

  • Intention

  • Joy

  • Determination

  • Bravery

And that theme, the guide through this coming year is….

My 2013 Theme: Authentically Inspired.

With each year gone by I’ve never felt the sense of relief or sheer joy for what lay ahead. But, 2013 is different. I’m excited, I’m inspired and I’m ready to do what it takes to make it great. Cheers to a brand spankin’ new year!

    1. It’s so hard not too — especially when there’s a never-ending to-do list! I’m hoping this year to take it one thing at a time and really focus on making those little moments count! Thanks for stopping by Ms. Mandy! 🙂
