It was the middle of last night when I typed this (from my phone, again)...
I can't sleep because my thoughts have been racing a mile a minute. Which, actually, isn't all that unusual for me. But it always seems to be especially worse at the start of each new year. So many things to do, people to see, places to go, etc, etc. And always not enough time in the day, days in the week, months in the year, etc, etc. What's that phrase? Oh, yes... "The days are long but the years are short." Oh yes.
Three of my "resolutions" for 2013:
Read more books. I used to read at least one book a month. Often more. Last year I started two, and stopped both about two thirds of the way through both of them. Not because I wasn't enjoying them. I just got distracted with some project or another. I miss getting lost in a book.
Be better at keeping in touch with far away friends and family. Even if it's just a quick phone call or text or email or heck even a postcard, to say "I'm thinking of you". Far too often I think 'I'll just carve out an hour tomorrow to call so-and-so to catch up'. But that hour never seems to appear. Not cool, Suzanne, not cool.
Accentuate the positive / eliminate the negative. (Don't mess with mister in-between ;) This is often a tough one for me - it's so easy to focus on the negative shit, isn't it? Why is that? I really believe that it is so SO important to keep a positive frame of mind. "What you think about you bring about" and such. So I'll keep working on it. Always.
