I may be ridiculous, but there’s something magical to me about the week between Christmas and a New Year. It’s a quiet week at work, the stress of the holiday has ratcheted down and I can take a few quiet moments to revel in the optimism of the upcoming new year.
Will I finish my novel? Will my husband and I become parents? How should I focus my energies when it comes to volunteering – last year I volunteered for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – to be honest, I’ve had loved ones that have been impacted by Alzheimer’s and ALS – I think this year, I’d like to find out how I could volunteer for those causes.
I’m mulling what my financial goals will be … paying down my college debt is one thing that I want to do in the new year, as well as build a better emergency fund. But I say these things every year, I need to figure out how I’m actually going to acheive this.
A new year is like a fresh page in a notebook. Blank, yet full of possibilities.
