I'M BACK AND READY TO ROCK 2010!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 TO ALL MY BAND BUDDIES! MAY THE NEW YEAR BRING YOU RENEWED ENTHUSIASM AND CONTINUED SUCCESSES!
So...where have I been all this time. I haven't forgotten you guys. In fact, I checked in daily while my family and I were away. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to post during our vacation to the far reaches of the earth. We went to spend Christmas with my parents and they live on a lake in the mountains. Very beautiful and serene...hence, no internet yet at the house. I was able to read every one's posts on my cell phone but unable to post my own. I'm sorry I didn't realize ahead of time I wouldn't be able to post. I would have let everyone know. I hope no one was worried that I fell through some ice into a frozen river while trying to snag the last nanaimo bar (super yummy and band friendly chocolate square...not friendly to waistlines...beware).
We had a fantastic Christmas. We had 14 people at dinner, two turkeys (the edible ones, the people were all fun loving family), three dogs, two parrots and a parakeet. A great time was had by all! My poor mom though was exhausted by Boxing Day (another great holiday!). I, however, was invigorated by the clean, crisp mountain air and found myself with boundless energy and enthusiasm. It helped that I managed to eat anything I wanted without gaining an ounce. I wasn't stressed at all about the eating part and somehow, everything balanced out. I am really excited to be getting my first fill on the 5th so I can get this party started!
What an amazing feeling to know in your heart that you really are going to do "it" this year. I don't have to make any New Year's resolutions that I will feel bad about breaking later. I am confident, secure and ready to make this leap into a new life. 2010 is going to be my year. I have moved mountains to get here and I can see the ocean ahead of me. I am going to make it to that beach. The one I have been searching for for many years. Then, just watch me as I stroll along in my red bikini, singing my song and smiling ear to ear!
It has been an amazing year for me and I will always remember 2009 fondly as the year I chose me. ME. That all important person whom I neglected for quite a while. She has forgiven me though and is happy, truly happy, that I am putting her first and making sure she is around to carry on all the good work she does. So here's a toast...To all those who recognize their self worth and start loving and taking care of themselves so they can be around to love and care for all the special people in their lives....cheers!
Thank you to all of you who take the time to read and comment on my posts. It means a lot to me. I wish you all many blessings for a New Year 2010 filled with love, happiness and peace.
