On word and up word.

This time of years always invokes reflection for me. The stress of Christmas is over and yet there is the looming new year ahead. The new year always makes me feel two ways. One, that I haven't done enough in the current year. Secondly, I feel the weight of expectation from the new year. As I get older, the years seem to pass by faster and faster. The laundry list of places to go and things to see seems to become more of a unrealistic task instead of a wish list. I know that this can't be changed over night but in the spirit of the New year I have been thinking heavily about what is really important to me and what I really want out of this next year.

It is no mystery that I am getting older, with that come (in my judgement) more expectations. I have set these certain expectations years ago, and now it it time to see how they measure up. For those goals not made, it is time to either reassess or decide they aren't as big of a deal and move on.

These are my goals/aspirations for the next year:
1). Have health insurance. (a must)
2). Do the Triathlon I have been wanting to do for the last 4 years now.
3). Go to Viva Las Vegas in April.
4). Eat more Organically and locally.
5). Be a really good cook/ vegetarian.
6). Decide what I am going to do with my company, how I'm going to run it and take care of myself during the whole process.
7). Love Noah without limitations. It is time to let go and love whole heartedly.
8). Have an "intervention" with my parents about their health and finances. (I can't believe I've waited this long)
9). Decide about my job. Either find a job that fulfills me more or dive into my work and really decide to give it my all. My indifference is killing me!
10). Start Dreaming again. I feel like I have lost some lust for life. My everyday has forced my dreams to the back seat or even the trunk. It is time to air out the mothballs on my dreams.

The reason I decided to start this blog is because I have big plans to explore my culinary talents, expand my sewing/designing abilities and have a place to express my ideas and frustrations. I hope never to offend or disgust but am a realist and know that might happen. If it does, i'm sorry in advance. That was /is never my intention.
