I’m not the biggest fan of New Year’s except the fact that it’s considered a holiday and gives people time off work to be with our families. It’s a time of reflection and hope for the future.
It’s also a time when we should consider planning our future instead of just accepting what comes our way. Of course, there are things we can’t control, but there’s a lot we can control and could be taking steps to make our lives better. That’s what I think the new year is for — a reminder that we can start fresh and accomplish our most precious desires.
Today I’m taking it easy, as I have been for a few days now. I got out my 18-year-old Kitchen Aid mixer this morning her her first workout of the year; mixing a wonderful cheesecake that I will later top with blackberries. It’s going to be delicious.
It’s back to work in a couple of days, but until then I hope to continue relaxing and reflecting on what this new year could be for me and my family. I hope that you have time to do the same.
