For the Chinese, 2018 may be the year of the dog, but for me, the new year seems like an ideal time to declutter my surroundings - both literally and metaphysically.
From vowing to use all my the gift cards I have accumulated over the years (yes - YEARS!), to finishing the countless bottles of youth potions and half used hair products, I am determined to spend, lather, and spritz my way through the first couple of months of 2018 (First world problems, I realize.)
In addition, I have the more daunting task of ridding myself of possessions - from clothes to furniture and knick-knacks, 2018 will be the year of minimizing all the crap I have collected over the decades.
Most importantly, is the purging of unhealthy thoughts and unnecessary stressors.
Breathe in positive light, breathe out negative darkness - repeat.
A few years ago when I started this journey, I spoke about wanting to practice meditation and yoga more. Unfortunately, neither became a regular part of my schedule. I am hoping that will change in this new year and bring about a more relaxed and peaceful existence.
2018 - new year, new goals. Who's with me?
Thank you all for stopping by. I wish all my readers a happy and healthy New Year and the best 12 chapters of your lives.
