As with every new year, we sit and make ourselves new promises. Make mental to do lists and set ourselves new challenges for the year ahead. But aren’t we setting ourselves up for a fall?

We are right to have expectations, even good expectations, but we shouldn’t be ready to chastise ourselves when we can’t hit all those targets by the end of January.

I prefer to see in the new year with the mindset that we are starting to create our new memories. We don’t know what they are or what those memories will be, but who cares? I mean really, does it matter if the new memories we’re about to make aren’t all spectacular?

We come into this life with absolutely nothing other than love, so for me, being surrounded now with even more love and someone I have chosen to spend the rest of my life with is all I really need. The memories we make and create for ourself truly are an amazing bonus. Good or bad, they make us the people we are.

Happy new year to each and everyone of you, enjoy writing your new chapter…
