New Year, is it really a new start?

It is a good idea to get on the wave. Sometimes. When everyone is thinking about what they would like to do differently this year.

This year I am choosing the Pay If Forward theme. I love that movie and I especially like it when Eugene surrenders to his own needs and desires and doesn't let his fear of getting hurt stop him anymore.

I have a new grandson. I don't know what his presence is going to ignite in me. Something I am sure. I am amazed at how big he grows and he is just 19 days old now.

I want a future that our kids are proud to be alive in. Facebook is changing the world. And so is Walmart. Cell phones. DVD movies. Online streaming movies. Technology is moving at such a rate is it worth buying any movies anymore . . . really.
Won't Blu-ray be a thing of the past and we will move onto something else?

One thing I am finally getting is that keeping things not only clutters up my life, but it is almost totally unneeded. I can share via Freecycle anything I no longer need. And when I need them, things will probably show up on Freecycle or somewhere else or I can buy it with the money I saved not paying for storage to keep the original item.

It has only taken me 43 years to figure this out.

Those are the things I am thinking today. 1/1/11 is over already. And we head forward into the unknown.

What will you create this year?


  1. Great work Dar! I am excited by this recent discovery of yours. It blends well with one of my favorite sayings "out with the old and in with the new".

    One of the things I am committed to in 2011 is creating the space for us to have what we desire. Truly believing that anything is possible is the first step, followed closely by committed action.

    Looking forward to hearing more of what you discover...

  2. Nice to know you are listening honey. Accountability will be helpful for both of us.
