The new year is here!...2009!....I really can't quite believe it!....Wasn't it just Halloween?....What happened to November?...& with family visiting for the holidays & so much going on, the days just seemed to fly by..... even with things slowing down a bit these last few days, time still feels like it's going much too fast!
With this in mind....I begin to make up my list of resolutions....I am definitely a "resolution" kind of girl. I enjoy writing down my hopes & dreams for the new year. Somehow putting pen to paper actually makes my commitment much more real,... & for some reason, much more attainable.....I must do it every New Years Day!..... Many of you who feel that after years of not accomplishing your resolutions, you will no longer waste good time in making them, or at the very least make fewer.....But not me!...That is far to sensible!....For me, the process of adding difficult tasks to a yearly list & trying to figure out how to accomplish them is somehow theraputic!.....It makes me "happy" to have a list, sometimes in the double digits,.... of changes I want to make in this new year of 2009!....I feel empowered, with not only a fresh month, but an entire year to see them through!....What an odd creature I am?...odd, but optimistic!
So with "this day" the first of a brand new year....I take that new pad of paper & sharpie & begin my list for 2009!....Some on my list will come to fruition & some will not.... but I will continue my quest for bettering myself & my surroundings....For me it's "tradition"...a tradition I will hold tight to every January 1st......Good Luck with your resolutions &...Happy New Year to you all!......
