New Year, New Me

Hannah Hart Beat

Hey Hart Beat. Hopefully you’re not appalled that this image is coming way after New Years actually happened. I feel like 2016 was off to a great start and maybe all of us (yours truly included) need a little fire under our bellies reminder.

I love this list written by Woody Guthrie in 1942. Most of them still apply which I love. “Don’t get lonesome.” and “Stay glad.” are two of my favorites. The list is below in case you’re having trouble reading Mr. Guthrie’s handwriting. Cheers to you, Hart Beat, this wintery Wednesday.
