A thought as we farewell 2023 & welcome a New Year

December 31, 2023

Happy New Year everyone!

I wanted to share this thought with you as we farewell 2023 and welcome another year. As we go into 2024, I wish you all peace, happiness and health.

It’s that time of year where we feel we have to make resolutions, goals and plan our next year to the second.

Yes, I’m a goal setter, I need something to work towards, but I gave up resolutions years ago as most resolutions are forgotten before the end of January.

Let’s take the pressure off and make promise to yourself to live life and make the most of each day. Let go of what robs you of joy and happiness and draw in and hold what brings you joy.

Action for Happiness – Happier January

The January focus for Action for Happiness is ‘Happier January’ and the calendar provides daily prompts to help. 

Action for Happiness Happier January

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I’ll be sharing my WOTY for 2024 on 2nd January. We don’t need a WOTY to live well and enjoy life but for me I quite like the idea of a word to focus on to enrich my life.

Have a wonderful 2024! Thank you as always for your support of my blog and it is always lovely to read your comments and connect with you.

With love, Sue 💕💕💕

    These are very worthy thoughts about not reaching too far for the stars but appreciating what we have in front of us with focus and mindfulness. Happy New Year Sue. Bernie

    All the best for 2024 (and have saved the calendar to remind me each day – thanks for that!)/

      Thanks Janine I think the world could really use some Happiness at the moment and we all need to find our own way to achieve that. I look forward to reading your WOTY/goals and intentions post. Happy New Year x
