In A Nutshell

nutshell

This is my first New Year’s Day as a blogger.  I have spent the last two days reading posts on last year’s highlights and this year’s goals.

It all seems so formal.

I was just chatting with a blogger about how I make a list every day.  I put five things on there that I hope to accomplish by day’s end.  If there is anything left at the end of the day, I roll it over.

Never put on more than five things, so I don’t feel overwhelmed. Never allow the rollovers to make me feel unaccomplished. It is progress.

I have been doing this since the age of 31 and I am 53.  My therapist started this practice, and it stuck.  It works for me. I do this every single day.

I guess that’s about as formal as I ever get with goals and resolutions.  I only have one major goal for 2014:

  1. To put my fingers to the keyboard and write!

That’s all!

  If that is accomplished the rest will come in due time.

Looking back on 2013 I have learned a few things:

  1. I love my Swiffer.
  2. I can cook anything in a cast iron skillet.
  3. Kirby’s are REALLY worth their weight in gold.
  4. WordPress is the greatest place in the world to connect with awesome and inspiring people.
  5. Humans are weird.
  6. Books are books.

No great revelations here. A few observations.  Life is a blast and can be boring all at the very same time.

Happy New Year!
