I didn’t even have to write resolutions this year.  The wise and knowing TUT sent these today:

1. Give thanks that life is… just as it is (and that it’s been… just as it’s been). Because of it, you’re now “READY.”

2. Define what you want in terms of the end result. Don’t worry about the hows, or even the course. KNOW that what you want is ALREADY yours in spirit, by divine LAW, just focus on the certainty of this ownership, understand it, claim it, and “it will be on earth, as it is in heaven (spirit).”

3. LET THE UNIVERSE show you the way via your impulses and instincts that appear as you take inspired action. Don’t worry that your first steps seem silly or futile. And if you don’t know what to do, do anything! Go! Get busy! Do not insist on intermediary successes, only upon the end result.

2011 is going to be your year (it already is),
    The Universe

Gosh, that sounds so much more inspiring than my vague goal of trying to eat healthier in 2011 (this after subsisting solely on cookies yesterday…and I am not kidding.  But in my defense, they were really extraordinary cookies).

Oh…and my other, equally vague, goals:

1. Stop feeling guilty.

2. Stop being fearful.  Just do it.


Mea culpa:

The kids love the Swiss Colony food.  Especially the beef logs.

Best. Gift. Ever.

Go figure.


And so 2010 comes to a close, quietly and peacefully.  I’ve purposely made no plans, turned down invitations.  Tonight it’s just Gambit and me toasting the New Year with sparkling cider, dumplings, cookies and the ubiquitous Swiss Colony cheese.  Brainiac will be celebrating with his girlfriend’s family; Girlfriend is spending the night with a friend.

The deliberate calm of the evening reflects my need to take stock; it’s indicative of my growing stillness.  The remaining shreds of turmoil seem to have passed from my soul and psyche – at last – leaving me grateful…and looking forward to whatever comes my way in 2011.

Love and optimism are marking the end of 2010 and the start of 2011.  I couldn’t have manifested a better way to ring out the old, bring on the new.

Happy New Year.
