waking up to a new day

well happy new year friends!! i hope that your holidays were filled with love, happiness and fun...and hopefully not very much family drama :)

what's the first thing people ask you after the new year...what's your resolution, right? well i'm not gonna ask you that. i've decided there are only so many days in the year to promise to sit at my sewing machine, with my guitar, with my french books & tapes, or losing that last 5 lbs...so in lieu of a "resolution," i am just looking at 2011 as a year to be better to myself: my mind and body.  here's the thing: i like to eat, sit on my couch, sleep in and sometimes drink an entire bottle of wine by myself on a friday night with a good movie...so i'm definitely not going to promise to not do those things :) but i also like to practice yoga, take pictures, write, and keep in touch with family and friends, so i figure i'll just give my all in whatever i'm doing!

after reading alice's take on resolutions, i was inspired and comfortable with my decision... and i have a quote that i'm going to use as further inspiration...at least for now!

"far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." - theodore roosevelt

so here's to 2011 *cheers*
