New Year’s Day:  Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions.  Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
~Mark Twain

I don’t believe in resolutions – they’re stupid. Really, really stupid!
I do believe that a new year is a new opportunity to start brand new, forget about the dumb things you did last year (like paying for that new car with a credit card, or 12 cards) and choose to embrace new things, new foods, new people, new outfits, new jobs, new… Everything.

So here is the NEW I hope to be…


Research ways to get paid by just being the creative person God created in me.
Plan the trip to Europe with Betsy & Amy (Paris, UK, Ireland, Prague)
Reconnect with some people
Broaden my social circle
Spend more time with the boys, not arguing or yelling or nagging
Do yoga twice a day 4 days a week (seriously)
Begin music lessons with the boys
Replace 2 daily Diet Cokes with Waters
Daily devotional with the boys
Learn something new (recipe, craft, anything…)

Stay with me – I’ll post updates!

**PS: Share what your going through, changing, finding this January 2011


Fear of Blogging

All you bloggers out there I ask how did you get over the fear of writing what is really on your mind/heart?

I mean my parents read this (I hope) and I wonder what they would think about what I am writing/thinking. So do you just throw caution to the wind and go for it or sutley ease into the truth or forget it and lie? What are your experiences with them all. I think a lot of things that I don’t write for fear of rejection, persecution and other -tions that shall remain nameless for fear of well, those. Do you do the same things? How did you  overcome?
