Hello guys and dolls!
I took a leave of absence, if you will, from wordpress – my apologies. I’m back in action, though, so no worries (not that you would worry). It’s a bit late, but…Happy New Year! 2008 was a roller coaster ride for this lady, but I’ve been known to really enjoy roller coasters. I seriously wouldn’t have had it any other way. It has now been tucked away in a safe place so that I can go back and reminisce when necessary.
On to 2009…
Let me tell you, I’ve never been as excited about a new year as I am now. 2009 has already brought with it a freshness! I can feel it, taste it, see it, smell it, hear it…even my 6th sense knows it! 🙂
I really prefer not to do the whole new years resolution thing. I feel like most goals are too unattainable, or you forget about them, which ultimately ends in self-defeat. Instead, I just make a list of things to look forward to (not so much resolutions), then I make tiny goals for each month and write them in my goal journal. I won’t share those with you, but below is a random list of things I am looking forward to in 2009:
1. Skydiving [again]!!!!
2. A new job (which began last week)
3. My dear sister turning 16 ::tear::
4. A new camera [which arrives in the mail TODAY!!!!!]
5. Road trips/concerts with friends
6. Turning 23 (not really a milestone, but I’ll be one year closer to being able to rent a car. Woo hoo!)
8. A healthier Whitney
9. Baking more for events
Annnnd the quote of the day/month/year:
“Dwell in possibility…”
Do it. It’s wonderful.
