This year

I will seek joy.

I’ll accentuate the positive, in all things.

I won’t cling too tightly to the good or the bad.

I will deflect negative energy.

I’ll run after my dreams, remembering that it’s okay to walk sometimes, too.

I will take time every day to be still and quiet.

I won’t take anything, or anyone, for granted.

I’ll work hard, play fair and celebrate accomplishments.

I won’t be discouraged when things don’t go as I’d hoped, knowing there’s often a good reason — or a lesson.

I’ll never stop hoping for the best.

I will explore the new and savor the old.

I’ll be in the moment every day. Every moment.

This year
My birthday always feels like the start of a new year more than any other day. This list will surely evolve in the next 12 months, but it’s an excellent place to start.
