14 Ways to Make ’14 Brilliant


So many resolutions, so little time!

When I was ten years old (or so), one of my siblings asked, “What’s a revolution?”  I answered quickly, “A New Year’s Revolution!”  There was much guffawing and the exchange has lived on in my family for a few decades.  Of course, I was not quite right, but in the spirit of that innocent remark, I give you my (not too)  revolutionary list to create the best year ever.

14 ways to make ’14 brilliant

  1. Leave a bit of thread in your needle.
  2. Sing.  Even if you don’t think you can.  Even if someone is around, because singing helps you …
  3. Breathe!  Breathing brings us the most fundamental nourishment for our bodies (no breath, no life!)
  4. Laugh a lot and cry as needed.
  5. Connect with a friend every day.
  6. Take your shoes off at the door.
  7. Read or listen to the news BUT NOT just before you go to bed.
  8. Play Solitaire with a real deck of cards.
  9. Go outside and play.
  10. Smile at yourself in the mirror as much as possible.
  11. Unplug for at least 2 hours each day and especially when visiting, snuggling, or eating.
  12. Love more (yes, that means your Self too!).
  13. Raise your arms above your head and shake them wildly for at least 30 seconds each day.
  14. Do something that you really love to do: imperfect action trumps perfect inaction.

Ta dah!  Easy breezy – what would you add?
