Often times when it reaches the end of the year, I like to reflect on the year that was. Most people will do this, but for me I do it partly because my birthday arrives immediately after the New Year. 2010 has been a pretty good year, with many amazing opportunities. But as I move into my 34th year on this Earth, there are things yet accomplished that I must now tend to.
I am looking forward to 2011. I have not made any New Year resolutions aside from one. What I have, however, are plans for this coming year. Things that I need to get done. Sometimes life tends to get in the way of one's plan. Hopefully, I will be sticking to my guns, and in one year's time—when we arrive at this moment once again—I would like to be able to say that I have checked those things off the list.
I also hope that 2011 will also be a year of new friendships, with many new relationships to forge. And I also hope it will be a year to strengthen the old ones that I have. There is nothing more important to me than the people that I care about and love. 2011 will be the year that I will make sure to remind them of that.
I hope everyone have a wonderful New Year. I think John Lennon's Imagine is a nice song to remind us what our world can be if that's the way we want it to be. Happy 2011.
