Not that 2009 was a particularly awful year, but I'm happy to see the back end of it.
Hoping 2010 exceeds my expectations.
[Which, since I have none, is a good possibility.]
Looking forward isn't something I'm particularly good at any more.
I've lost the optimistic spirit that's inherent in youth.
I'd like it back please.Because attitude is half the battle.
So an upbeat attitude would be helpful
in the year to come.
It would make slight annoyances seem like
And bigger problems would dissolve into
that irritate but don't dibilitate.
Joy could be found in smaller and smaller and smaller things.
Like what I experienced last night looking at rough cut, polished stones in brilliant greens and blues and pinks.
I want a clean house to satisfy my inner neat freak.
And not just think about how hard it is to keep it clean.
It would be nice to savor the food I eat
and not fear it will cause gastrointestinal stress that takes the joy right out of eating.
(just keeping it real here)
Maybe get beyond what I call kindergarten Spanish
and carry on conversations about meaningful things.
Adapt better to the schedule and learn to stay up late without it
completely wiping me out and making me useless the next day.
Have more energy to go beyond the basics
and do more than what's absolutely necessary.
It's been a while since that has happened.
Yes, a little optimism would be helpful.
Not only by me.
I'm sure it would make my husband happy too.
2009 was a year of simply getting by.
I'd like 2010 to be more.
