Lighting Firecrackers Off On the Front Lawn, As Thirty Dialogs Bleed into One


This is the time of year when we all decide what is wrong with our lives and ourselves and resolve to change it. It sounds like a great idea. But, it doesn't seem to work too well. Lord knows I've tried many times for the big change and have failed miserably. Be it lack of willpower, or lack of motivation, something always seems to get in the way of me being more, better, faster, stronger.

This year, I've decided to give myself a break from all the recriminations and give myself some props instead. This year has truly been an unbelievable one for me. Boundaries pushed, bent and broken. Expectations raised, surpassed and shattered. Creativity ebbed and flowed. Three weeks spent feeling so fantastic, so right and so far away. Left a sinking ship before my feet got wet and never looked back. Relationships have grown and blossomed. Amazing times were had and amazing experiences changed everything.

So, thank you everyone for being a part of my 2008. Pop the champagne and sing Auld Lang Syne. Here's to an even better 2009.

Happy New Year, Heidi! I think you have it right. I've ceased going out of the year focusing on what I didn't manage to accomplish and celebrate all the things i managed to um...pull off...so to speak ;)
XOXO
