Cheers & Ciao!

2010 was a whirlwind of madness. I can hardly believe it's over! This past year, I found myself pulled in endless directions. Ignoring intuition, I jumped into a sea of commitments and obligations, and resurfaced physically and emotionally exhausted. I did not spend nearly enough time doing the things I love with the people I adore.

Recently, I have been challenging myself to sift through the chaos and pinpoint the burdens I need to surrender. As a result, I've discovered several ambitions I absolutely must embrace in order to live a happier, healthier, better life in 2011.

- Explore & indulge in whatever inspires me and spurs my passion for creativity, and refuse to feel guilty about it just because some people don't consider it "productive" or "relevant". I will do what I love, do it often, take chances, and make it worthwhile.

- Write! I write all day long for a job that does not allow me to exercise my imagination. I will purposely allocate the time and outlets necessary for the expression of my personal thoughts, ideas, and sentiments.

- Invest all my best into the people I love, and stretch myself to the fullest in each relationship. Be graceful, generous, supportive, and kind. And remember to forgive.

- Cultivate myself professionally, and intentionally pursue opportunities that excite me and will hopefully lead to a more fulfilling and rewarding career path.

I'm thankful for a fresh start, and beyond excited for the many wonderful things that await us!



"A trapeze artist cannot swing from one bar to the next without first letting go."

My birthdays have always been intensely retrospective. I reflect back on the past year, cherishing memories, celebrating accomplishments, noting failures and disappointments, embracing the power and significance behind it all. And then I let go.

I am soaring forward with great expectations.
