here's hoping for a better year than the last. i don't really do resolutions, but i will say that i'm shooting for a much lower stress level this year, which entails many things i resolve to do/not do. and many things i hope my loved ones resolve to do/not do. so, here's to a new year. the "happy" i'm not sure about...i feel like that's a word i don't really like anyway, as if it puts too much pressure on the expectation, and i don't want to just say it out of habit. and maybe i'm ok for now just saying it's a new year, with a new energy.
