I really enjoyed being with my family. The grand kids are perfect and it was wonderful to spend time with my daughters.
As much as I love the holidays, I am always happy when the new year starts. It feels like there is a clean slate to write on, and I have been thinking about what I want to write on that slate this year.
I don't make resolutions, but I do try and set some goals for myself.
I am working on what those goals are, but I know from experience that life will intervene and goals have to be flexible.
One thing that I want to focus more on is living a simpler life even in this complex world that we live in.
I want my small apartment to be a haven from all of the complexities of the outside world. I want to be able to close my door and know that I can choose to turn off and tune out if I want.
Now I will have to decide how to do that amidst the activist work that I am doing.
For me just thinking about focusing on a simpler life brings about a sense of peace.
Do you have plans for this new year?
