Goodbye 2010...Hello 2011...

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."

This quote from Charles Dickens's "A Tale of Two Cities" sums up how I felt about the year 2010. In a way 2010 kicked my butt...but in a way it was full of fun and new adventures that only leave me more excited for what 2011 holds.

So I am gladly saying goodbye to 2010 and saying hello to an exciting 2011.

...goodbye cancer
...goodbye to an accident that almost took my brother-in-law's life
...goodbye difficulties in family members lives
...goodbye to health issues that led to a surgery for me
...goodbye allowing other people to create drama in my life
...goodbye to being scared to dream and move on

...hello to feeling good and healthy again
...hello to being married for 10 years to my best friend and soul mate
...hello to a European anniversary vacation
...hello to moving out of Folsom/Sacramento
...hello to knew possibilities for Layton and myself
...hello to starting fresh in a new place
...hello to dreaming

I leave you with a quote from my favorite author, Ralph Waldo Emerson, that I am going to claim over 2011...

"Always do what you are afraid to do."

Here's to not being afraid in 2011 to DREAM!!
