2011: The Year of Realizing Dreams

If you'll allow me to be cheesy for a moment (and you'll have to, since it's my blog), I find myself waxing philosophical at this time of year. I've had lots of conversations with the partner-in-crime about what I want 2011 to be; much of this comes out of a general feeling of frustration with 2010, but it also comes from a place of fresh beginnings and hope for a new year (however arbitrary the demarcation may be). Being the lover of words that I am, I've been compiling two and three word phrases to characterize my hopes for the new year, and I thought I would share. Because sharing is caring. Except when it comes to herpes.

I've organized it like a poem because it makes me feel better (what up, Shakespeare?).

2011: The Year
The year of chasing dreams
The year of taking risks
The year of daydreaming
The year of random dancing
The year of better eating
The year of more smiling
The year of appreciation
The year of realizing dreams

Your turn!
The year of ________ (this is where you fill in the blanks)

Happy New Year, gentle readers!

The first thing that popped into my head was The Year of Sharing. So that's my "word association" answer. But you know, I kindof like it. I think I'll stick with that.

The year of making it happen, although the 'it' is still fuzzy for me. :)

Happy New Year!

I love the chasing dreams one, so I'll just borrow that ;-) :)

Sharing is caring except herpes! Mwahahaha! :)

I liked 2010 very much...and I plan to love 2011 even more.

Chasing a realizing dreams, living fearlessly is pretty much the message I'm trying to spread for 2011. :)

Here's to a spectacular 2011, my friend!


The year of breakthroughs.
