I hope everyone had a good holiday and you left 2015 with happy memories. We have no choice in welcoming 2016 but we do have a choice about what we do in 2016. Some people like to make resolutions to map out their goals of the year. Some people just slide right into January without a thought about the upcoming months. Whatever you do, make a New Year’s declaration to make this year count. Look up from your phone and see how blue the sky is. Remove those earbuds and listen to the birds or the river or your friend’s laugh. Move: walk, run or skip. Bike! Talk to people. Volunteer. Don’t just be a consumer: create things. Try something new. Rediscover something old. Challenge yourself to have a year that matters.
