Resolutions...Then Again...

The holidays have kept me MIA.

But while the potatoes are roasting in the oven and before I stem some greens & carve up some ham, I thought I'd wish you, dear reader, a Happy 2009!

Of course, last night FD & I, joined by a fabulous couple we absolutely adore, dined at Revolver for their special 8 course celebration meal. As always, it was the best meal ever. They continually top themselves.

Which got me thinking.

This year I'm going to continually top myself. ("That's what she said.")

Seriously, this year I'm going to challenge myself--in my job AND my art. I'm going to disregard "What If"s and push myself to live without reservations or worries. I'm not going to second-guess myself; I'm going to accept humanly fallible. And most of all I'm going to embrace the facets of myself I truly love and focus on strengthening them & sharing them with others.

(Why is it so much I say can be followed with "That's what she said"?)

I'm excited to see what 2009 has in store for me as a skeptic, composition instructor, assistant director, writer, reader, doggie-mama, techie, Alicia's Voice board member, Wick Poetry Center alum, locavore, SmartWater drinker, daydreamer, & queen of typos.

Actually, I resolve to reduce my typos...

Happy New Year and best of luck for your resolution. By the way, your "Thats What She Said" parenthetical made my day!

I truly think that this is going to be a good year. I too have been motivated to make dramatic commitments that further myself. Let us both succeed and succeed well. We can do it.
