I love the fresh start to the New Year. There is much talk of resolutions and new beginnings. I really love this stuff. And I do know many people hate it.
We have spent every New Year’s since my split at my best friend’s cottage with her family.It was there interestingly, 5 years ago, that she used the term “broken family” which started me on my way to write about our unbrokeness.
Every year I bring a cue card for each person and on New Year’s day we write ourselves a letter to open the following New Year’s day. It can talk about how to be, what you will do, what you will change- whatever you want.
Then I put them in an envelope and hide them in my underwear drawer. The next year I bring them up for everyone.
Try it if you don’t believe me- what do you have to lose?
