Tonight I'm making a effort to reflect on successes from this past year. As a problem-oriented person, I usually end up dwelling on failures. Or looking ahead to what needs to be tackled next. Plus "reflecting on past victories" sounds a lot like "resting on your laurels."

But I need a break from that thinking. And I need a dose of joy. So tonight I've scheduled a dose of savouring certain memories along with my pinot grigio. We'll see how it goes.

Happy new year to you.
