Happy New Year!!!

How you start the year is how you’ll end it…

happynewyearI vaguely recall saying that to a stranger at the bar just minutes before midnight.  She was in her 30s but she looked 20 and I thought I was giving her sound advice regarding her ex-boyfriend.

I’d already had 4 drinks and two other people I didn’t know offered to buy me drinks.  I accepted both and gave one to my date.  Then the countdown started and champagne was passed around and everything got really blurry after that.

Somehow we got home safe and sound but I woke up to a terrible hangover and almost no memory of the last night of 2013.

Not a good start for 2014.

But it was a fun night.  And even though it was a rough way to start a new year I’ve decided that it does not represent what my year will be like.  I will not drink and party way too much and eat hangover food and get distracted and sidetracked.  This is the year that I stay focused.

People have been saying “good things are going to happen for you this year” since I was a child.  I thought I was special until I realized it’s just something people say at the end of a year.  I still liked hearing it though.

Anyway, good things will happen for me this year.  2014 will be an amazing year.

Happy New Year everyone!
