A glitter river into 2009

It’s the first time in a long while I’ve sat down to actually write something for my blog. To write. Not to post photos and wax a few poetic lines of beauty and mist and cute snuggly dogs, but to actually write. It’s a little daunting. But I’m determined to do more of it into the new year, and I guess that’s what this post is about.

I’m actually looking forward to and planning for 2009. And that’s just really different for me. Because I’m known for the line, “I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions.” Or another LeLo signature line, “I don’t 'do' resolutions.” But yesterday I let it slip that I was thinking of it and that I had a few. AdRi played it cool and didn’t look at me, but just kept doing what she was doing while saying nonchalantly, “Oh really?” I knew she was playing it cool. So I told her that I had a few, and interestingly enough they fell into a theme of more. Of doing more. Of writing more. Of eating more fruits and vegetables. Of walking more. More time in the garden. More hands on gardening. More targeted business recruitment. More time with true blue friends. More communication. And there were a few “less”s in there too. And a few more “more”s.

It’s like I opened up the door to New Year’s resolutions and the floodwater poured in. But I prefer to think of it as the glitter river. The glitter river is getting ready to pour into and over me, and it’s called 2009. I don’t need a life jacket, but a boogie board would be good. It’s going to be a very good year, and if you see me, you might notice a few bits of glitter. Do not be alarmed. It’s only the sparkle of doing more, trying more, and being a bit more vulnerable in that way of the daredevil.

I suck at New Years Resolutions

I never make resolutions, but I do set goals. There's a difference, methinks. :-)

Have a very Happy New Year!

I agree I think 2009 is going to be a rocking good year! I think we just have to be open to all that will happen and embrace it.
