Looking Forward

Looking Forward

Happy Day 1 of 2012!

I’m not one for goals. I don’t do resolutions anymore. Why? I don’t want to feel like an abject failure when I look back, 12 months from now, to see my goals and resolutions as I had originally set them, not yet crossed-off my list.

I much prefer looking forward. So in that frame of mind, here’s what I’m looking forward to for 2012.

I look forward to an active, healthy life and lifestyle. I look forward to writing, and publishing several books. I look forward to hearing the plays I wrote read aloud this year.

I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends, whether in person or online; for I firmly believe you can never have too many friends. I look forward to opportunities to expand my knowledge – of myself, of writing, of the mysteries in the world.

I look forward to celebrating my friends’ successes and to watching my sons spread their wings.  I look forward to laughing, and reading, and watching the fire in my hearth. I look forward to another year of a deepening love, one I couldn’t have imagined 35 years ago.

And I’m really looking forward to dealing with whatever life decides to dish out to me this year.  Now, to begin my year on a solid note, I shall go for a jog. And when I return, I shall make healthy pancakes for the family.

Happy New Year.  Sending much love and many hugs from my home to yours. What are you looking forward to this year?
