Resolutions.

I have always had a love/hate relationship with the new year (every single year..).

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I was born on january 1rst (and so was my first daughter to my dismay). In my younger days I did not like the fact that I had to share my birthday with the rest of the world, but then I got older and realized "Hey its a WOrLD party if I cant beat them I might as well join them".

Today is also a first for me; I usually celebrate just my birthday on this wonderful day of new beginnings, but now I have decided to celebrate my accomplishments for 2008 and actually write down what I would like to accomplish for 2009 (I bought a special little black book for that).
I have always tried to find peace and happiness outside myself ( in my kids, my husband, my work),always tried to fit in this cookie-cutter-happily-married life scenario although that has never been me . I have now decided to stop being scared of life or the unknow and to actually start living my life and write MY StOrY as I see fit for myself and also to find happiness within me.

Looking foward to 2009 already!!

I heard somewhere that happiness is a choice, and I so believe that. Sounds like you are well on your way to a very satisfying 2009! :o)

Visiting from SITS...happy birthday! And what a great way to start out the new year...with some celebration for what you've accomplished and less personal judgement for who you are. I could take a lesson from you, lady! =)

Happy Belated Birthday! My dad's birthday is also on January 1st.

Mine is the 20th. I have had fun telling my kids that this year on my birthday there will be thousands celebrating, and there may even be fireworks and all sort of goodies - it is inauguration day.

I like your pursuits for the new year!

Thanks for stopping by too . . .

Cheers!

Hey, awesome to hear. If you're always holding on to the rope of other peoples expectations, all you'll ever have is the rope anyway. I am glad to see you're doing a bit of a push pull on that, and being more true to yourself.
