For writers, there's something about a blank page. Clean and unblemished, it can inspire or it can invoke paralysis. It's the same thing with a new year. Full of still unformed possibilities, a new year can be both exciting and intimidating when you're standing on its doorstep.

I want to eat at new restaurants, travel to unusual places and above all, be open to things that make me uncomfortable.
