Happy New Year! I love new beginnings & start overs. Not so much New Year Resolutions.
The intentions we have … pounds to lose, books to read, closets to clean, and all those projects to finish. My heart is pounding with excitement. Will I start a new workout? Do I go to the library or buy a book? Do I donate, throw out or keep all my closet treasures? Which project first? I’m exhausted.
Suddenly, it’s March. The scales put a little tear in your eye, the book on the nightstand has dust on it, and don’t open the closet – not a project finished!
That’s how my New Year Resolutions WERE.
I now have a guaranteed resolution l want to share with you. It starts with a passion. Mine this year is to help feed dogs in my community. Simple, maybe. But I believe even giving a little something simple can make a huge difference.
To help fund this endeavor, I asked my family for dog food and sandwich bags for my birthday. At first, they thought it was weird and a little sad. Now it’s just normal. My community has a drop off box for food and other donations which is close to my house. I keep a container full of dog food in my car which makes it easy for me to replenish the box at any time.
Here’s to a wonderful 2023, everyone!
Special thanks to Fox Farley Willis & Burnette for providing the drop off box in my hometown of Clinton, Tennessee.
