I’m that weird person who always says “Happy New Year!” about a week longer than everyone else. I know I’ve taken the New Year’s greeting too far when I say it and people look at me shocked and confused. Then I retire the greeting for the year. So, I know we’re already into the month of February but I’d like to take a minute about talk about January.
One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2018 is to take note of the good things in my life while they’re happening. If you haven’t figured this out about me already, I’m very driven and goal oriented. This is a good thing, but sometimes I’m so focused on the future that I don’t take in the amazing things happening in the present until much later.
This year I want to look back on each day, week and month and take moments for joy and gratitude.
That being said, I’d like to share with you 5 Amazing things that happened in the month of January.
Ziggy Smalls and I are really enjoying bi-coastal living. I’ve been slowly setting up my California apartment and enjoying the slower pace that we have when we’re on the west coast. One of my favorite things about my California apartment is the fireplace. Each night I make myself a cup of tea (or glass of wine), turn on the fireplace and watch the news with Ziggy curled up beside me.
It’s something simple, but I love having that as part of my night routine.
