Bonne année

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
~ T.S. Eliot

Another year begins anew. I have been reading online posts of New Year’s resolutions. Thus far, my favorite is from a friend in France, who wrote:

“En 2014, pour faire original, je prends des mauvaises résolutions.”

Translation: In 2014, to be original, I will make bad resolutions.

I know this is meant to be tongue in cheek, yet considering how quickly I break my own vows each year, perhaps this is the way to go?

Every year I vow to stop biting my fingernails and typically fail within a mere few minutes. I could attempt to set myself up for success for a change.

These past few years, I have been making changes in my life that seem to be leading me toward a more sustainable existence. Thus, I think for this year I will continue what I have started trying to do:

Listen to my inner voice.

Believe I am valuable and have something to offer the world.

Avoid rolling my eyes when given a compliment.

Give away my possessions.


Pursue my passions.

Be patient with the universe.
