Another New Year

Another year has gone by and here I am again faced with a new year to plan for - resolutions to make and goals to set.  The question is, what do I want to accomplish this year?

I haven't yet had time to find an answer for this question.  I hope to be able to put some thinking time in this weekend towards figuring out what I want to do with this year 2011.  I know I don't want to just make the traditional goals to lose weight; to spend more time with my family; to save more money; to spend more time on myself.

These are all good things and I plan to continue working on each of them but this year I feel a distinct need to dig deeper. I want to find that now secret wish or desire I've buried somewhere down inside me - to address and to finally accomplish this long forgotten something.  I just need some quiet time to contemplate what this is....  That's the big question for me to answer this year - how to rediscover me.

For now, I want to wish my dear family and friends a very 


Good Luck with your own resolutions.  I'd love to hear about them if you'd like to share.  : )

I volunteer for Hospice and recently we had a presentation about being (or becoming) our authentic selves. It was a really good presentation by a lady who has always struggled finding out who she really is and then sharing that freely with the people in her life. She framed it in such a great way saying that being authentic and sharing that is how we can best connect with others and enrich each others lives.
It made so much sense I decided it would be one of my goals for 2011--to become my most authentic self (and to begin to figure out who that is).
