Write your chapter wisely in 2017. . .

\”New Year — a new chapter, new verse or just the same old story?  Ultimately we write it.  The choice is ours\”  –Alex Moritt

A New Year brings infinite new possibilities. A clean slate.  A reason to erase past mistakes and start afresh. We all know that resolutions don\’t always stick. But for a shot at real happiness, try penning a set of personal commandments (an idea borrowed from best-selling author Gretchen Rubin).

I would suggest writing them down and keeping them handy. This may make you laugh, but I have mine scribbled on a post-it note stuck to an ancient, long-expired Bed & Bath coupon. Anytime I\’m stuck in traffic, listening to Justin Beiber’s \’Love Yourself\’ repeat itself for the 4th time in a 60-minute window, I find myself pulling out my handy-dandy list and ruminating on what\’s important.

Here\’s my list. . .to help you get started on your own:

  1. More adventures.
  2. More creating.

\”January 1st is when you make New Year\’s resolutions.  January 2nd is when you break \’em.\” You\’ve heard that, right?  It\’s almost a bad joke you tell yourself when come the middle of the month, and you\’re peering into your fourth cocktail at your best friend\’s big 40th birthday party.  Oops!!  Wasn\’t that your New Year […]
