A New Year....a New Beginning!

Happy New Year everyone!

It is so hard to believe that we are into the 3rd day of this New Year already and I haven't posted anything on my blog yet!

Our holidays were very busy, extremely exhausting and just not a whole lot of time to relax. It was all good though and it was wonderful getting to spend some time with family throughout the week!

Everyone has been asking about my New Year's resolution, and to be honest, I don't like to make resolutions. I never seem to be able to stick with whatever I say I will do and well, then I feel like a total loser and that just makes me feel worse than I did before committing to anything. I do like to set myself some type of goals each year though.

My goals for 2011:

Get healthier and more active
Create more for myself
Enjoy some quiet time
Learn to balance things better without getting overwhelmed

These are a few at the moment and I am sure there will be more added as the month progresses and I have real time to focus on what I want to see happen this coming year! For now I think I have a good start on things and hopefully I will do well at reaching some of my goals along the way! Here's to hoping!

I am giving myself this week to get life back on track now that the holidays are over, and then LET THE CREATING COMMENCE!!!!!
