What do you wish for the New Year?
To be honest, I've not thought much about resolutions or New Year's Wishes or anything like that yet... I guess now is a good time!
I am always wishing for enough. Enough money to pay the bills, enough to keep us fed and warm, enough to keep the car on the road and running... but I feel like I have been living hand-to-mouth my whole life. Just making just enough to make it through if I perform some complicated dance... Well, I want more.
Not greedy, stingy, over-excess More, but More than just Enough. I want the money to be there for the bills before they're due. I want enough to do more than just the basics; I want to be able to make repairs to the car, house, my family... as soon as they're needed, not when I can scrape enough together, or never. I want to be able to buy new clothes because they're pretty, not because I've worn out all that I have. I want to be able to take the kids our to dinner, to a movie, shopping for things that aren't necessities.
And this isn't all about money. Although that's a big part of it. I want more PASSION! The drive to create, the drive to play, the drive to succeed... Not just enough to get by.

So my wish for the New Year can be summed up in just one word, my word of the year perhaps: MORE.
