Cozying up to 2013: It’s going to be a hot year

Can you feel it? That exciting sense of possibility that comes with a brand new year?

Will you fall in love? Hook up on NYE? Travel the world? Get a promotion? Get some new sex toys? Graduate? Makeover your bedroom? Make it to yoga every day in January? Drive less? Kiss more? Upgrade your birth control to a method you don’t have to think about or remember?

Take a moment to think about everything you want to happen in 2013. Go ahead. We’ll wait.

Now imagine the steps you’ll take to make your dreams come true. Baby steps, preferably. Not ginormous steps that seem too daunting. Knowing the steps is like having a map to follow—even if there are 80 steps, at least you’ll know how to get there. Try to include what you need to do more of and what you need to do less of to reach your goals.

Next, all you have to do is commit to taking one of these small steps every week. Or every day if you’re ambitious. If you have any self-doubt, let go of it. If you’re afraid to take the first step, do it anyway. If you’re not sure about the steps, talk to someone who can help. If you feel like starting right now, don’t wait. There is no time like the present.

Of course, this is just one way to get what you want this year. There are hundreds more. However you approach it—and whatever you do with 2013—don’t forget that we believe in you. All year long.

Happy New Year,
