I don't do well with resolutions. I've tried, but they end up being revolving doors of resolution. The last few years have been a spin cycle of chaos, and I need to whittle things down to a more manageable size. (Thank you for the quote that's forever in my head, Charlie Kaufman.)
This year, I only have one goal. One resolution that touches into everything else - work, health, family, friends, emotional well-being. It's not a big one, and it doesn't have any lists I can check off or apps I can download to mark my progress. It's just a feeling. A general state of being. My 2012 resolution is to be happy.
Birdy learned this word just this week, and she lets it fly with reckless abandon. Only it's rarely an exclamation or a question. Her "happy" always ends with a period, as though it just is. "Happy."
May 2012 be a year of good health for all of us, emotionally and physically. And I hope we're all happy, with ourselves, for others, and in general.
Happy New Year, you guys. xo
