My wife had this idea for a long while of making New Year’s Themes instead of Resolutions. Normally, when I come up with a resolution, I’d write it down, lose the paper, and never get around to completing the goal. Instead of doing that, a theme let’s me set a vague general direction for my life, and if I accomplish something that fits in my theme, I win. My wife is one smart cookie (and not just because she married me).
So, my theme for this year is this: “Give it away.” It could mean a lot of things, but so far, it means a few things.
- giving away some of the extra junk that’s taking up too much space in our small condo
- giving my time and effort to those who need it,
- sharing what little I know with those who need it.
The last one I plan to accomplish through this blog. Here, I’ll post about work, life, etc. I’ll share what I’ve learned and what I continue to learn. We’ll see where this new theme takes us.
