For you the New Year asks for an emotional clean-up. You should get rid of a burden, even if the process is painful. After that you'll be ready for a fresh start.
You have some great ideas but you should start with making order and getting rid of everything that didn't work in the past. Then you'll be ready for a freash start.
You didn't get a lot of peace and quiet during the holidays. If you can, tet some rest now before you focus on new activities.
