I’ve decided that I’m not going to weigh you down with any public expectations, goals or resolutions. That’s not really fair of me to do, is it? Instead, I will place those expectations and goals on myself, and they will be simple: To love more. To accept better. To appreciate the many gifts that I have been given. These things will all come to me because of my own choices….my own decision to go out there and get them.
Lots will happen in the coming year. Many of these things will be out of my control. The only thing that I can control is my own attitude, my own determination to make this my best year yet. If I focus on what is in my control, then I will meet my goals for sure.
So, 2011, bring what you will. Good or bad, I have faith that I will come out on the other end of it smiling. Thank you for giving me further opportunities to love, laugh and learn.
