Have you made your New Year's resolutions?
I've been sick all day and just pulled myself from a tangle of bed sheets to pen mine.
I'm feeling a little blue to be so sick on my first New Year's Eve in a new city.
My best friend is in town too and sadly, I don't think I'll make our special dinner plans.
But, I won't enter a new year with heavy boots.
Instead, I'll just consider this the 'purge' before a brand new year.
I love the promise of a New Year, don't you?
From the deepest, most secret part of my tender heart,
I've mentioned more than once that
I'm no good when it comes to change.
I'm clumsy and stubborn and it seems to be a constant struggle for me.
Every year I resolve to be more flexible, more forgiving and more calm.
This year, I will try again but with a different approach.
2010 taught me that many changes, although difficult,
can be really amazing.
I welcome 2011 with a full heart and an open mind.
I hope you do, too.
