Welcome to 2010

It's THAT time of year when we think about the New Year and all the changes we want to see in our lives before the beginning of yet another New Year. Yep, that's right; I'm talking about resolutions. Some people make them, and others don't, but regardless, we all see the New Year as the beginning of a new page in our lives.

Usually I'm one of those people that don't make resolutions. Mainly because my experience is that I make a resolution and about a week later I kick myself because I broke it. I'm sure many of you are familiar with that scenario.

Last year, however Mark and I both wrote one word on a piece of paper that we wanted to accomplish during the year.  My word was 'unconditional love' (okay, two words).  Throughout the year, many scenarios cropped up to help me see that to love unconditionally is my choice.  I can choose to remain in the small minded and weak belief system I was raised in this lifetime to accept as 'normal' or move into the gentle flow of unconditional love and allow those belief systems to change.  All year long, I made choices and now, even though I know it is an on going process, I can see how much freer and lighter I feel having walked that gauntlet of choices.  I am very grateful!  

This year I have a phrase I will be working on.  'Lighten up; have fun; laugh a lot.'  I'm very excited to see how I can change some of the heaviness in my life to light and laughter.  It's going to be a fantastic year!  

What is your word or phrase for the year?  


  1. I wish you a wonderful year of lightening up, having fun, and much laughter and good health. So glad I have gotten to know you this year through the blogosphere! I look forward to the unfolding of your journey in 2010!

  2. I think yours is wonderful. I do feel lighter when i laugh more too. I sure hope 2010 is full of joy, laughter and great health for you and yours. I want to continue to creat my life as i want it although the love unconditionaly sounds good and so does your 2010 idea. Hmm...I guess i will need to think about it. Happy New Year Katrina

  3. Katrina, I know that whatever you come up with will be perfect for you! Happy 2010!

  4. I love this!!! :) Sounds great!

    This year Chris and I have a lot of goals for ourselves. But our main one is to love ourselves as much as we love each other. Love absolutely every imperfection no matter what.

  5. Kristen, that is a wonderful goal. Have a really fun time doing that! Hugs to you both! Pat
