New Year’s Eve

Slice of Life

New Year’s Eve is the day of straddling time.

We have one foot in the old year and one in the new year. There is time for reflection of the last 12 months and planning for the next year and beyond.

I have big plans for the new decade which center around my 2020 #oneword of MORE. My words come to me organically often at the end of November. This year was no different.

I have spent the last couple of weeks reflecting on what went well in 2019 and what I no longer want to continue, what I want more of in my life, and what my next right step is for my goals.

I want MORE walks in the woods.

I want MORE money to be able to do help people, travel, and live.

I want MORE time to help other teachers and coaches be the best they can be.

I want MORE writing.

I want MORE submissions, rejections, and acceptances.

I want MORE classes that I teach and that I take myself.

This year feels like a true fresh start. I finished my notebook yesterday and began a fresh one. There is something wonderful about a new notebook with fresh blank pages full of possibility. I woke up this morning to snow on the ground that I have been wishing for all month. I take this as a great sign that I am off in the right direction.

What are you wishing for in 2020?

What is your first next right step?

  1. Here’s to a year of MORE of exactly what you need and want. Happy New Year! I’m a bit jealous of your snow. We’re having rain, rain, and more rain. Truly living up to our reputation this winter.
