Happy New Year

My friend, Allison, and I have declared 2009 as the "year to get our sh*t together." In more ways than one - professionally, physically and mentally. Normally I'm not the make-a-resolution-and-stick-to-it kind of person because I wind up forgetting about it in February. But, as I sip my champagne at midnight and nurse my hangover the next day I'm going to hope for a different type of year. One where I honestly sit down, plan, and try to get my sh*t together. Hey, it's a new year which means a new start...so anything is possible.

Welcome 2009...you are here to stay...for at least a year...so let's kick some design butt and get ready for the inspiration train. Here's to a Happy New Year!

Image via Snorkiesnork! which I thought seemed appropriate...like each little paper crane is a goal waiting to be set free in the new year.

I will join you in that resolution, Diana! Is there room for a third? I won't take up much space, because one of my resolutions is to whittle my ass down to, oh, about a third of what it currently is! Happy new year, my friend;) Thank you for so many laughs and inspirations in 2008.

A-M said...

Couldn't have put it better myself. We're all going to get our sh*t together this year.....I can just feel it. Your blog is inspirational... see, one New Year goal achieved for you already... on Day One,2009. It's 5.30am, New Years Day here. Pathetic aren't I... but everyone else is still asleep... what else does one do but blog! Happy 2009! A-M xx

I totally concur with your great attitude for 2009, a year full of opportunities. I also LOVE the photo you choose -- the emotions are perfect for the feeling of change and hope. Happy New Year!

Hear hear, I want to get my act together in 2009 too! What I did last year, which I'm doing again this year, is just make a list of 20 or so random things I want to do (like take a cooking class, start a blog, go to the gym 3-4 times a week, study Spanish). I ended up ticking off about 3/4 of the list. I find that it's easier than making a really broad New Year's resolution like "get fit". Good luck! xx

jesska said...

Sounds like the "getting shit together" is the motto for 2009, I'm all for it too!

paisleystclaire said...

Oh, I'm hearin' ya! I'm going to draw a line under 2008 and get it together this year. Happy New Year!
