January 06, 2011
I hope you all are having an incredible new year. I know that for me, the starting of 2011 has been more than just the change of a digit at the end of the date. It has meant something so much more: a new beginning, a new opportunity, a world of chances.
I'm hoping to share my poetry a lot more this year, something I think I did miserably on in 2010. I'll try to post more "snapshots" and more of my own poetry on this blog as well as submit to online journals and magazines, something I've struggled with a lot in the past because of my perfectionism when it comes to my poems.
I also just want to stick to the resolution I've tried to keep for the past two years: be happy. That's all there really is to life, if you think about it -- everything traces back to happiness. If you're happy, that's all you'll ever need. I'm putting on a positive attitude and taking things in stride. I've learned life's not long enough for you to get worked up or upset about anything. Even if something might seem life-shattering, it's just a test of how strong you are. (Think about it that way. :) ) So, if you will, join me this year in staying happy. As long as you know God's on your side and you're alive, you should be happy.
And that's it for my goals for this year. What are some of your thoughts and hopes for the double-one?
