It’s the 28th of December and another year has come and gone. This time of year, with Christmas, used to be my favorite. Decorations went up right after Thanksgiving, batches of cookies were made, shopping was done, and dinner was planned. This year nothing.
It was a very depressing year and the month of December did nothing to raise my spirits. It was a year of none accomplishments and bad news. The fast approaching holidays drove home how low things had gotten. I was tired, disgusted, and negative in all my thoughts. Every time I logged on to the internet, Ramblin Ann was staring me in the face telling me I needed to write something, but I quickly clicked on another tab. As the saying goes “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all” There was nothing nice to say.
With the new year right around the corner I started contemplating where I want life to go and things I would like to do in 2011. I needed to get it in writing and here for all to see. There is nothing tremendously grand. No great feat that I need to work ’round the clock to attain. No leaping tall buildings in a single bound. A short but doable list.
1. See and talk to my kids more
2. Learn to speak Italian
3. Learn Reiki I & II
4. Consistently reach five-star or above in Ann’s Furry Friends
5. Create a rough outline of a book I want to write
There you have it. It’s out there for all the world to see. What are your top five things to do in 2011? Get them written and read them often. Have fun doing them and do a victory dance once you get there. The world would be a much happier place if we all just danced more.
