I feel like every year I'm caught completely off guard by the new year. 2016? Whatever do you mean? It was just Thanksgiving like two days ago. It can't be, you're wrong.
I haven't sat down and made any long lists of things to do this year. That's not because I don't have a million things I want to do in the new year swimming around this crazy brain of mine. I do. Dozens and dozens of things. But I've decided to focus more on big picture this year.
Instead of trying to control every little thing, and plan myself to death (although, there will still be plenty of list making and planning, don't you get me wrong), I want to step back and be more open to new things. New ideas, new plans, new places. Taking things one step at a time.
If there's one thing I think I'm finally coming to grips with from 2015, it's that things don't always work out exactly how you thought they would, but that's sometimes great. And it may be cliche, but never say never. Like, seriously Josie, stop it. Stop saying never, because you're totally jinxing yourself.
