I love january. It is such a fresh and clean month. Full of promises and crispness. It is like the first page of a new notebook. In january everything is possible. In january I dream with more hope..
I don't think I would have signed up for a daily post for a year in any other month…It is beyond insane, but somehow it fills me with encouragement instead of dread. Only in january..
Elianne has posted 40 resolutions on her blog. She made me laugh but then I thought why not? 40 is probably better then 5 as you get to be more specific and more specific usually means more doable.. And anyway it is a list and I love lists
