Christmas Day in Colorado.  December 25th, 2010


Wow….another year down.  Did I not just graduate high school?  Oh no no, that was 8 YEARS AGO!  It is true what my mom has always told me.  The older you get, the faster the time passes.  Sometimes it feels as if life is stuck in fast forward, doesn’t it?  But with each New Year I am reminded to remember all the blessings in my life and inspired to further persue the goals and dreams I have for the future.  Hence the “New Year’s Resolution” right?  I never was good at sticking to those.  So instead of New Year’s Resolutions, I like to just make a list of GOALS.  It just sounds a little less intimidating! The first BIG BOLD GOAL of 2011 for me is learning how to better BALANCE  my life.  Believe it or not I am a workaholic! Those of you who know me are whispering, “duh”.  I overbook & overcommit, leaving me feeling stressed and anxious….A LOT.  I’ve realized i’m just one girl and while I think I can take on the world sometimes….I just can’t.  I need to learn to say NO when necessary and plan time for the things that really fulfill me in life and make me the happiest.  Like more time with my husband, planning more mini vacations to rest and unwind, more coffee dates with my closest friends, and more time invested with my family.  Sometimes work has a way of taking over and blinding me to the things that are most important.  And a lot of the time I allow it to happen, and I want to change that.  There is also another BIG SURPRISE I am not quite ready to unveil yet….but let’s just say it will effect my 2011 more than anything.  Stay tuned for that.

So here’s to CHANGE in 2011!  Good luck in all of YOUR dreams for this new year!  xo -Kelli
