As I’ve said, I don’t believe in – or practice – New Year’s resolutions. But it struck me this morning that that being said, Friday might be as good a time as any to start anew and to promise myself more of what brings me joy.

There are so many things that bring me joy, when I take the time to notice them, and so many ways I can bring more joy into my life (and hopefully into the lives of those around me).

So, for the upcoming year, I promise myself I will:

  • Meditate more
  • Laugh more
  • Play more
  • Rest more
  • Bask more
  • Relax more
  • Practice yoga more
  • Lift more
  • Goof off more
  • Enjoy more
  • Love more
  • Hug more
  • Smile more
  • Watch Dr. Who more
  • Joke more
  • Notice more
  • Appreciate more
  • Snuggle more
  • Hardwire my happiness more
  • Love more (again)

I was reading Hardwiring Happiness again today, and I took note of the Good Year box. “On New Year’s Day, I started a Good Year box. Each day I put a note inside about something good that happened. I will read them all on New Year’s Eve. Now when a little something good happens in my day, I feel it instead of glossing over it.”

I think it’s serendipitous that I read about the Good Year box two days before New Year’s Day. The timing is perfect. I’m going to start my box on Friday. I invite you to join me.

Happy New Year!
