10 for 10

I am ready to start anew. I did A LOT of growing up in 2009, I learned a lot about myself and I learned a lot about other people. It would be almost untrue if I said that 2009 was a bad year all around, but in actuality it did suck.

I loved.

I lost.

I cried.

I gained.

I had fun.

I drank green tea.

I got painted.

I dated.

I yoga'd.

I wrote.

I spent.

And I tried.

I am a huge advocate for doing what you say. For the new decade I will steal Nike's slogan and "Just Do It!" because odds are, I will regret it if I don't do it. So, lo and behold the great 10 of 2010-in no particular order:
  1. Become a size 4. And stay a size 4.
  2. Learn my native tongue. Spanish.
  3. Read books. For a writer, I need to read more to expand my thoughts, ideas and vocab.
  4. Take ballet. Flexibility, grace, elegance and a workout.
  5. Continue playing soccer. I proved to myself I can get back in the game.
  6. Drink the proposed amount of water daily. Good for skin, internal system and thirst.
  7. Recycle. It's just good for the environment.
  8. Smell the roses. Taking time, slowing down and just being.
  9. Save moola. 10% of every pay check is going into a savings account. Credit cards will be emergencies only (new shoes count :))
  10. Stick to a diet plan of healthy eating. Weight Watchers is first.

One more for good luck: Blog more. Besides actual therapy, this blog has proven to be an outlet for me and it feels good.

Cheers to a happy and healthy one!
