Picking one day to make resolutions for the new year is not a good idea. We can do this any day of the year, and indeed we should resolve to make change whenever we recognize that it’s a good idea. What’s special about today is that we can take it as a reminder to look back, to look forward, and see our lives in a different scale of time than what we do on the day-to-day. What have you been up to for the last 365 days? Has it been a good year, are you making the most of your limited time?
I’m thinking about how it’s gone as I look toward the future. This year I’ve found a job and an apartment of my own. I’ve met many wonderful people (including Kaitlyn!) and reconnected with old friends. I’ve traveled, practiced old hobbies, and tried new things. I want to thank all of you for being a part of this, and I hope you all have a wonderful new year. Go out and make 2014 the best year yet!
And don’t forget to take pictures!
