Let the merriment begin . . .

. . . with the celebrating of another year over and the anticipation of a new year.  Days to start over with new hopes, new plans, new attitudes, new dreams.  A time to say so-long to the chaos and challenges we faced in 2010.  We put our mistakes and our perceived failures behind us.  We've got things to do!  We've got plans to make!  We have dreams to fulfill! 

I've seen alot of bloggers post about their favorite accomplishments over the last year.  While I've been enjoying your make-overs, your new opportunities, your creative endeavors, I feel like I didn't do a thing this year.  Oh, I know that is not true but I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday so I for sure need to have me a sit-down to figure out what the hours of my days were spent doing.

I don't do resolutions.  Every morning when I wake I vow to make changes.  This year I am going to write down everything I want to accomplish and set some goals.  This list is going to be posted where I see it every day so I can't forget.   I am terrific in the planning department - not so terrific in the carrying out of those plans.  A new year is just what I need!

Reflection is not my forte'.  It scares me a little.  Some things are best forgiven and forgotten.  But some things need to be remembered in order to know what needs to be tweaked in my life.  I'm painfully aware of my flaws and willing to work on some (I wouldn't want to change who I really am and I think I am pretty okay).  That is why I am writing it all down here.  Remind me this year, my blogging friends, that 'change' is my go-to word.  Ask me what I've accomplished so that I am forced to show you.  And as you always do, inspire me daily.

I think that I am prepared for the challenges that I know are coming this next year.  I am ready!

I wouldn't have even thought of half the plans and dreams that I have if I hadn't met each and every one of you.  I thank you for your friendship!  I strive to be worthy of your visiting me. 

Blessings to you all for the new year!  Together, we are going to rock 2011!

Hi Connie,

Happy New Year, Connie! I hope it is full of magic and blessings. I do not usually reflect on the previous year either. My mom always said there is no future in the past. This year I hope to make some goals come to fruition, myself. Good luck with yours.
