Hello 2011. Where have you been all my life?

January 1, 2011 at 4:20 pm (Random Thoughts) (, )

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

I just stole that New Year’s benediction from Neil Gaiman’s blog.  Isn’t it wonderful?  I am the first to admit that 2010 wasn’t the best year of my life.  I’ve been making a joke of it with people, but if 2011 doesn’t bring a divorce, death of my pet and dental surgery it is going to be a huge improvement on the previous year.  So, instead of making resolutions this year I’m going to try.  Try being more open and honest with myself and the people I love.  Try to see the beauty in the everyday.  Try to forgive myself for my mistakes. Try harder and try less.  Try new things.  I’m going to fail in many ways.  But, hopefully I’m going to succeed in as many, or if not more ways.  So that hopefully by this time next year, I can say that Neil Gaiman’s wish came true for me.  I’d be honestly happy if it came true for you, too.
