A Promise to Myself for 2011
Happy, Happy New Year! Can you believe the holidays are behind us already? Yikes, they were a blur, but a fun blur. This year I have decided against resolutions. To be honest, I break them. So this year, I've decided on making promises to myself. I think it's harder to break promises to yourself. So here I go...this is what I've promised myself this year.
I promise will be brave. This is am important one for me. I sometimes will let my fear (especially of the unknown) stop me for accomplishing the things I really want. I hope that fear will stop me only long enough to think about what I’m about to do, but will not stop me in my tracks.
I promise that I will slow down. Sometimes I get moving too fast for my own good, and I do not pause to listen the advice of others or to enjoy the successes that come along.
I promise to go with the flow I alittle more than I normally do. I’m not the most spontaneous person in the world, and I hate when someone changes the plan. Makes we crazy and I generally do not enjoy myself as much as I could. I promise to take a deep breath and move along.
I promise to try new things. This has become one of my favorite things to do. New experiences, new recipes, new adventures. That's what life should be like.
Well, since it is back to reality for me to tomorrow I should get going. Have a great week, and let's get 2011 off to a great start!
