As we flip our calendars and move into a new year, take a moment to consider what kind of year you want. For me, Happy isn’t the best adjective for what I seek. How about you? Let me suggest some others.
Heady: Make 2013 potent, even intoxicating.
Hearty: Let your year overflow with meaty challenges that, as you overcome them, each makes you better.
Helpful: May you find ways to help but also allow yourself to be helped.
Historic: Let the year ahead prove noteworthy and memorable. “Remember 2013? Now, THAT was a year!”
Healthy: May your health and that of your loved ones be hale.
Heartfelt: Be earnest, even passionate, in whatever you undertake.
Humorous: Laugh at yourself and your circumstances – not others – and encourage others to do the same. Life’s too short to take it all too seriously.
Handmade: Craft and mold the year into what you want. Get your fingerprints all over it.
Hospitable: Pick your friends – but not to pieces. Even when you vie with rivals, compete without being a jerk.
Hardworking: May you do work worth doing and do it with gusto.
However you choose to describe the new year, make it your own. Just as no two people are alike, so too are no two years alike. Best wishes for your own, personal, one-of-a-kind New Year.
