A Brand New Year

January 3, 2011

Kissing 2010 goodbye brings us face to face with 2011.

With every new year, inevitably, are new resolutions, promises, goals… The wizards of finance, economy, politics, astrology, etc. are in hurry to predict and chart our year for us. What will 2011 shape up to be? What kind of year will you have? What’s in the stars for the new year? Pisces will dream big, Sagittarius will find romance, Virgo will face new challenges…

Although often entertaining and rarely valuable, we should not let the allure of these foresights and premonitions to replace our own instinct and judgement with those of others and/or to look outside ourselves for inspiration and guidance.

What kind of year 2011 will be?  A new beginning, a brand new year to get it right, an opportunity to find our path to a better life, a chance to truly understand ourselves and to improve upon what we find, a possibility to make a difference- even ever so small, 2011 can be anything and everything we want or dream it to be. And yes, we should never stop dreaming; as perhaps, all we may do in life starts with just an illusion.

” Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.”

Mark Twain

Good luck on a brand new year!

    I also make goals for the New Year. Mainly, I reflect on whether I met a goal or not. Then I either create a new one or refine the old one so that it is achievable. I have many goals. In a recent blog post you said ” dreams are goal with deadlines.”. I now add deadlines to my goals. Hopefully, this means that I will check more goals as met on the list in the future.

    I love the new layout of the blog!
