I can't believe 2010 is coming to a close--I was just getting used to it. Such is life, right? I've spent the past few days reflecting on the past year (who hasn't?) and setting goals for the year to come.
In order to make my goals more openly visible (and thus easier to stick to) I'll be making an inspiration board (a la the fitnessista). Yesterday evening I popped in to Micheal's and picked up some craft supplies! I could spend 100's of dollars in that store! Love it.
So you better believe that I'll be letting the creative juices flow this weekend. Not to be confused with creative juices of the alcoholic sort--although tonight is NYE, so that may make an appearance as well. ;)
I'll be posting my goals (along with my inspiration board) on Monday. Are you guys planning on making an inspiration board or anything along those lines?
Let's end 2010 with a bang!
I'd love to hear about your plans for NYE! What will you be up to tonight? Will you be out on the town or staying in?
I'll be staying in and celebrating the New Year with family and friends! I'm certain I'll enjoy a few adult beverages and there will be plenty of good food. Isn't that what the holidays are all about? Family, friends, food, and fun.
I, along with some other great bloggers, answered the question "How do you celebrate New Year's?" to be featured on Favediets Blog. Check it out here.
If the suspense is killing you, here's what I said:
A great way to celebrate the New Year is to set new goals, both big and small! It sounds cliche, but it’s true: the new year is what you make of it. So make it a fresh start. Take a moment to reflect on the past year, both successes and downfalls. See something you’d like to change? Make that a goal for 2011!
Don’t just think about your goals, make them concrete by writing them out! Tell your friends and family so that you have people to keep you accountable. This will only increase your chances of following through in the long run.
Also, check back on your goals every month or so to avoid forgetting about them altogether (a mistake I’ve made numerous times).
Of course, as a formal celebration I just kick-back and enjoy time with my family. Festive drinks and eats are always a must.
My favorite (semi-healthy) holiday cocktail:
1 c. seltzer + 1 oz. vodka
Add a splash of cranberry juice for color + a lemon slice for zest
Serve over ice and enjoy!
Want a mocktail? Simply omit the vodka and you’re good to go!
Have a fun and safe New Year's Eve! See you in 2011!!
P.S. After writing this post on my work computer, I realized just how much I love Windows Live Writer!! It makes posting so.much.easier!
