I was visiting with a friend last year when she asked, "do you have any creative ideas for discarding your tree after Christmas? I always hate to throw it out. It feels so wasteful"
One year our girls and I were lamenting over throwing our tree out and thinking about what we could do.
It was a time that I was reflecting on the year and the way I spent the last week heading into the fresh new year frustrated and stressed about all the work that needed done. I felt it was time to change the way I spent that last week of the year and start a new habit that I would later learn, would change the whole atmosphere of my year and how I approached everything in it.
Now we spend the last week in anticipation, excitement and thankfulness for what the next, new year will bring.
Here are 5 things we do to prepare for the New Year and all of it's possibilities...
1. We Clean up our decorations from Christmas and CUT UP OUR TREE.
So tell me. I would love to learn from you. What have you learned makes a great start to your year? And...do you have any great book recommendations?
Happy New Year!
