A New Year

Fly away

The dawning of a new year always makes me take stock. Resolutions or not, it’s a good time to step back and think about the last 365 days; what made you happy, what made you not so happy, and how you want to spend the year ahead.

Along with my annual “get it together” promises to myself (Organize my closet, once and for all! Leap out of bed in the mornings without hitting snooze! Write “thank you” cards instantly!) I’ve been thinking about some larger changes in perspective:

  1. Resisting busy – here’s a great article on this topic: Busy isn’t respectable any more.
  2. Pursuing meaningful experiences: Why are experiences often better purchases than things?
  3. Taking small steps that lead to big changes: Accomplish any goal by doing something small, every day. 

And of course, I plan to keep writing here, because I’m loving Anchorage more than ever, and most of all, I love connecting with people who want to share what they love about Anchorage too.

I hope that all of you had wonderful holidays and are excited for all that may come in the new year!

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
