The calendar may say today is January 5th, but in my world it's the start of a new year. I extended my holidays past New Year's Day and through the weekend. Last night when I went to bed I set the alarm for the first time in a couple of weeks. When it went off this morning I jumped into 2015. There was work to be completed, paperwork to be done, errands to be run, and a book discussion date with a friend. But before I got down to business I stepped back to ponder the big picture.
Several of the people and blogs I admire don't make New Year's resolutions. Instead, they set goals or pick a theme word. I thought that was a great idea, and decided my word for the year would be Organization.
This year I'd like to bring order to all the parts of my life. My independent business has grown without much of a plan. My house really needs an overhaul. At this time next year I want to be able to say I've cleaned the superfluous clutter out of the basement, cabinets, closets, and drawers.
Now that the new year is here I'm excited to get started.
