I think everyone sets goals for the New Year. I've done it before. I'm sure I'll do it again. I usually do it at Rosh Hashanah and then use the secular New Year's Eve as sort of a "first quarter review." But 2016 feels different. After my first meditation of the new year, with my coffee and the view of Lake Michigan I am grateful for, I feel renewed. I feel rested. I feel ready.
2015 was a year of amazing highs and lows. After signing with Shirley Hamilton, I learned that my web series "Humane Resources" was selected for two amazing film festivals. I booked a radio spot, a play, and made some great new connections. But I also had to make the hardest decision of my life and say goodbye to my beautiful cat of fifteen years. All of these new experiences have had an impact on me...the full effect I'm sure has yet to fully manifest.
So as I learn what 2016 is all about, my new year's resolution is simply to dive right in. Do more. Analyze less. Make. Do. Be. See you there.
