A New Year; A Fresh Start
by Cheryl

A new year is a fresh start in many ways. During the Christmas season many people look forward to the New Year because it makes us take an inventory of our lives and decide what things we would like to change. New Year’s resolutions are on our minds because we always want to improve our lives.

Many resolutions begin with cleaning up after the holidays. When I began putting away the extra holiday dishes and finding spots for all the new gifts, I realized we either need more storage containers and shelves or fewer things. I started to think about all the stuff in our lives. This made me decide to try to resolve to reduce, recycle, and simply buy less stuff. I’m starting by trying to organize and simplify my Christmas decorations and kitchen cupboards.  What a task that has been, but I’ve found thinks I forgot I had! Hopefully I can stick with my resolution as that is always difficult once time begins to pass. My Christmas gift should help me have fewer things around as I received a Kobo e-reader.

Getting organized can only improve your life! What New Year’s resolutions have you been thinking about?

This published top 10 list includes many of the usual choices:

1) Spend more time with family and friends
2) Improve fitness
3) Lose weight
4) Quit smoking
5) Enjoy life more
6) Quit drinking
7) Get out of debt
8) Learn something new
9) Help others

Hopefully 2013 will bring you and the world peace, love and happiness. The Pearson Adult Learning Centre hopes to be part of your 2013 as we work towards number eight on the list, learning something new.
