20 Fourteen – Happy New Year – Get a date
Tragically: Life is not the movie Love, Actually
Maybe you hung out with pals, ate way too much sugar, had one cocktail too many, avoided the gym, slept in and saw a lot of movies.
You’ve got a: New Year, a blank slate, and time for a “Do Over.” Carpe diem…
In January, gyms are rabid about enrollment and have super-special-offers and promotions. Shop for a great deal and read the fine print. Take a class – try Dancing: Salsa, West Coast Swing, Tango or Ballroom and get swept off your feet.
Over-achieving Not Required – It’s not necessary to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
In Twenty 14 resolve to meet new people and get in the dating game. It will be a lot easier if you push away from the mouse in your house, cut back on texting, unplug you ear phones and engage. Go outside and play! Speak to Strangers. Smile more, flirt more.
Talk to people. Smile. Look people in the eye. Flirt, already. Smile at people. Say “hey,” first. Yes, I repeated “Smile.”
In Twenty 14 Resolve: to join in the human race, at your own pace. It is a brand New Year – so full of possibilities.
Best Advice for 2014: converse with people rather than texting, “friend-ing” or merely emailing.
“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
― William Arthur Ward
