Goodbye '12...Hello '13

Happy New Year!!!

With a new year brings a new beginning and I'm very much looking forward to mine.  Last night I spent New Years Eve drinking wine, eating chocolate, painting my nails and looking back on this past year.  2012 was an interesting year and as I was thinking back on it I realized that despite a lot of struggle, there were many great things that happened to me. Don't worry, I won't bore you with all the details (you probably know most of them anyway if you've been reading along with me.)  With that being said, I am really excited to have a fresh start. I am going to take all the good from last year and take it with me into 2013 but I'm also going to add a lot more to it...2013 is going to be my year!

I've decided I'm not going to make resolutions, but instead make goals for myself.  I started making a list of things I want to do and I'm going to work really hard at accomplishing them.  I'll share some of my goals I've made for myself.
  • Read at least one book a month...I did this last year and I ended up reading 14 in total.  I love to read and kind of put in on the back burner for a while.  
  • See at least 1 live performance a month whether is be a music gig, a play, a ballet etc.
  • January detox...I'm not going to drink for the whole month and I'm going to eat much healthier and cleaner.
  • Continue with ballet class...but I'm adding that I want to make some really great progress and if I can afford it I want to take another dance class on top of it.
  • Write in my daily journal...I started this journal last year and slacked off majorly, but its important to remind myself of the good things that happen every day and be thankful for them.
These are just a few things I'm going to work on.  There are a lot of other things I have that I want to work on, but I'm going to keep those a bit more private.  This year for me is about sorting myself out and making myself a better and more balanced person.  Bring it on 2013...I'm ready for you!
