I am going to start off by saying Happy New Years to everyone. Personally I don’t think it is a big deal and I know it has been going on for centuries. Every country and culture celebrates the New Years in their own way.
I think it is a good excuse for people to have another day to party. In some countries like the USA it is a good excuse to drink. I am sure other places they may be doing a eating as well as drinking.
I look at New Years as a time to reflect and see what changes can happen in the year ahead. Some may call it New Year’s Resolution while I call it more into self-improvement. The problem though is many of us fall flat on our backs to improve. One area I would like to improve in is dieting where I can lose fifty pounds this coming year. Other words if I can lose one pound a week it will be good. Whether I can accomplish it I will see. In fact throughout the year I will let you know how I am doing. I plan to do some additional exercising to help lose the weight. I do some walking however 2015 showed me that I have to do more than walk to lose the weight. I believe it begins with strong will to do so and that is not an easy thing to do. In the United States we have so many different places we can go to keep the pounds on. I will spend less time at those places this year. I go to the coffee shop almost every day so I am looking at drinking more tea or soda like sprite or seven-up. They are both good when you have a problem with kidney stones like I do.
In a week my church looks to go on a fast for week. It can be more than just food. It may include spending less time on the internet and the social media along with the television. The purpose is to spend a week on more spiritual things to find out what will happen for the year. This is actually another thing I want to do is spend more time spiritual things throughout the year. What I hope for is to be more enlightened that I can share with others including this blog.
I am not sure how this blog will be this year; however, I do want to see some changes or maybe improvements this year. I am not going to change it enough that this blog will be a lot different. The basics will stay the same and the style I expect as well. I hope that when 2016 comes to an end we will all be better people.
A friend on one of my social media sites says that she wants 2016 to be a year where we met and have more friends. I find that to be something good for all of us. What I want most though is that every day we can have more of a smile on our face than the day before. Also, I like us to be able to be less stressful and feel real healthy. I lost several classmates in 2015 and I hope not so many in 2016. Hopefully health will keep us all in fine condition.
Not only will I continue to write about my hometown of Gig Harbor some of the time I plan to write more of the cities in surrounding area of Washington State. We have so much to offer for people to see whether to visit or live. Also, I want to continue writing about encouraging each other over the year as well. I would like to write about news stories that are uplifting too. May write about towns that could use encouragement as well; whatever the case 2016 we can make it into a better year. So when we say Happy New Year let’s make it really happen everyone. Yes if we really can we can make a difference in this world. So let it begin today and everyday forward.
