I hope everyone is off to a good beginning. New Years is sort of like the first day of school, isn't it? It is a chance for a fresh start. I will occasionally have a resolution but I don't like to do that to myself as it feels like a set-up for failure. I try to be gentle with myself about that sort of thing. We have enough pressures, don't we?
A few years ago I did resolve to be more attentive about recycling. To my surprise, I found that I really didn't have to discard much "garbage". I have far more recycling than actual garbage, so much so that I had to request a second recycling dumpster. My trash can rarely goes to the curb. So…that particular resolution was productive and led to a better habit.
I do like the idea of a word for the year. Many people on the quiltart news list opt for a themed word as a guide post for their creative year.
Enjoy the ride!
