Happy 2010! Very late, yes, but im wishing it all the same.. Its day fourteen of the new year... have you kept up with your resolutions? Here's some food for thought on the idea of a resolution: while its nice to say you'd like to accomplish X, you need to plan it out to the last detail. Not to the point where if you miss a checkpoint you have a complete meltdown, but for room to grow as a person while accomplishing your REALISTIC goal.Soo... December 31, 2009, you wrote down EVERYTHING you're going to accomplish for 2010. Great. Did you make a timeline? How will you execute this plan? Do you have a support system in place? What have you done up to this point to facilitate this goal? Remember it takes 21 days to create a habit, 21 days to break one. If you havent been going to the gym & all of a sudden try to run 2k on a treadmill, it wont work. We need to walk before we can run.. That being said, i've made a BUNCH of resolutions (meaning goals to accomplish &/or habits to break for 2010) but I started earlier on.. In November to be precise. And the first week of 2010 has been a success! Things can only improve as I continue to build those habits & work on booting the useless ones.

If you've made a resolution but have given up on it since January 4th, dont wait until December 31, 2010 to set a new plan in action. Start NOW. The hardest part of any journey is taking the first step. The only thing in the way of yourself is YOU. I've experienced this first hand & it persists in the lives of many.

"fb status 12/30/09: rather than hold on to a broken dream, I'll just hold on to love {NOW}>> forget 2010"-- the advent of 2009 spurred many facebook statuses to read "2009 is my year to shine", "2k9 is mine" & etc. What happenned to 2008? What will make '09 different if you continue in the same path as you were before midnight??

Be thankful for each day that you have, because at the end of the day what is 2010, but the start of another day, another opportunity to make a meaningful change in your life? Don't wait until tomorrow, start today and work towards checking off your accomplishments on December 31, 2010 instead of relisting the same ones for 2011.

Happy 2010!
