It is 2010!  Can you believe it? There is something so refreshing about a new year.  A new fresh start, a new beginning filled with dreams of doing things differently, maybe doing them a little better. I like to look at each day like that, not just a 'new year'.  Every day I wake up is a new beginning of new adventures just waiting for me to jump in and try. We really don't need a new date to start over, do we? Each day we wake up and live it to the absolute fullest is what it is all about. Start that new excercise program today or how about that project that you were waiting to do 'someday'. I say jump right in and at least start it. I'll bet that you get lost in it and get more done that you thought you would. It doesn't have to be monumental to anyone but you. For me it could be cleaning off my office desk - completely. Or taking that walk to visit the grandchildren and breathing in the fresh air while getting some well needed excercise. Visiting an old friend or making a call to a friend who moved away to catch up on what has been going on in their lives. Or starting to redo my settee (which I did start:) that has been on my list of things to do.  It felt so good to finally just do it. I already have a list of things that I am going to do this year.  For me if that means that I get up an hour earlier to do them, then so be it.  I like to rise early in the a.m. in Spring to photograph the sun coming up.  It is always so beautiful.  And walking through the garden with my morning tea starts my day like nothing else can.  The wet dew, the birds chirping and exploring what plants are coming up is heavenly.

What will you do this year that you have been putting off?  Something you really really want to do, something creative maybe, fun, healthy?  What ever it is I wish you nothing but tons of happiness and the best of health in 2010 and hope that everyday is the treasure is was meant to be.
