New Years Day seemed to slam me in the face as I was coming of the high and tailspin of Christmas. I had no resolutions, and honestly, no desire to make them. 2012 really stretched me in many ways and the good change that came from it was not a result of a New Year's resolution, but from either acceptance or action.
I really want to continue that theme into 2013. A year of intentional change. We have that choice to change ourselves and the world around us for the better by responding to what is given to us.
I received this journal in the mail from my friend Lorraine over at Chronicle Books yesterday. I like to look at it as providential. I think this is a small way to motivate me to make 2013 a continual resolution to reach higher in every aspect of my life. Not for the sake of fulfilling a resolution, or proving it to myself or others, but because I know my heart desires positive growth in myself, my family, and the world around me. It starts in the small every day decisions.
The journal is filled with inspiring quotes. One of my favorites:
"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. WE have only the present. Let us begin."
I look forward to sharing some of this intentional change with you:)
Cheers to 2013!
