2015: New Year, New Ukelele!

It is customary for a post today about all the New Year resolutions we’re supposed to be making.

While I do believe it’s a good time to set goals, all this unattainable self improvement does get a bit tiresome.

Lose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less, no chocolate, no sugar, no coffee, sleep more, stress less….be a better friend / wife / daughter / mother.

The list goes on and on.

As if us women don’t put enough pressure on ourselves at the best of times.

I have one resolution for 2015.  It is a resolution I’m looking forward to! I was given a ukelele for Christmas and am determined to learn to play the thing.

So far so good, I can strum Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, which delights my two year old.

We’ll see where it takes me, but there’s nothing like a new hobby to provide some light entertainment and a mental break from day to day stresses. An achievement in itself in my book.

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2015.

As some wise soul once said… “The ukulele is a portal that only very happy people pass through.”  Bring. It. On.
