Everywhere I go it seems I encounter the inevitable talk of New Year's resolution. My gym is more crowded, people are reading labels in the grocery store, the bars are slower, change is in the air. I thrive. This time of year (minus the cold weather and allergies) is fantastic. Even though it's just the same idea as a new day and new dawn, it means more to people. It signifies such a fresh beginning, a chance to assess and realign life.
As I say all that, I knew before the new year my direction for 2011 was setting into my heart. I want this year to be a deepening of awareness, a year when I get in touch with dreams and take more steps toward them, and open up the closed areas of my life. Many things will go into this process. I know that I must continue to make my health a focus, I'm getting older and I need to keep striving for the most active lifestyle and not let myself be lazy too often. Also I want to make reading a priority again, my mind needs even more exercise than my physical body and it's my firm belief that the two inspire and motivate each other. I will stop selling myself short and settling for a half lived life. I recognize limitations such as finance and time, but I also realize that I fail to unlock all that is in front of me.
Seriously, I can't wait to live twenty-eleven, I know it's going to be a great year. Blessings to you all, I hope you have a high aim and sunshiny outlook!!
