I love a new year.
A blank canvas.
A fresh start.
As you can probably imagine, I'm not sorry to put 2010 to bed. It was a year full of trials, loss and unbearable sorrow, but through it all, a year for me of incredible growth. By sharing our journey with Jeff's ALS my faith has grown as has the love and support of my family and friends. I have learned first hand the power of prayer, the importance of faith and the strength that friends and family can give one another in a time of need. For that I am forever grateful.
In thinking about this shinny bright new year that stretches out before me I wanted to pick one word that might summarize what I hope to accomplish in 2011.
For me that word is growth.
I want to grow my business, my creativity, my talents, my relationships. At the age when most Americans are retiring and slowing down I want to kick it up a notch, take a class, take a chance, grab the golden ring of life and raise it high over my head. I want to live each day to the fullest with a positive attitude and with gratitude. And when I lay my head on my pillow each night I want to not only count my blessings but count my accomplishments and my personal growth.
If you could choose one word that would sum up your goals for 2011 what would it be? Think about it, write it down, share it, live it.
Here's to a fantastic new year full of growth and whatever you want it to be!
