Dancin’ wich ya dog on – Confessions of a New Year’s Day Junkie

Every day is a day of creation, but I confess that I still find something compelling about New Year’s Day and the days preceding it.  I’ll also confess that in looking at what I want 2011 to be about, I have not completed a 2010 audit.  Although a full audit might be useful, I think that I want to focus my backward look through  my the lens of my goals.   And so far, my 2011 goals are less about tangibles, like going on vacation, and more on intangibles, like, well, let me give some examples.

My first goal:  that everyone in my life knows that I am thankful that they are.  2010 saw me feeling that more acutely, though not expressing it so much.

My second goal:  that I honor other people’s goals (including the lack thereof) and don’t squash theirs with mine.

My third goal:  that I pay attention more.  In the past, I have joked about not being as observant as others.  That little ditty is now over.

My fourth goal:  that people become present to the peace and love within and without, on an ongoing basis.

My fifth goal:  that I play more and encourage play.

My sixth goal:  that respect for the dignity of animals  reaches a critical mass.  You knew I wasn’t going to leave that out.

And that’s where I’ll stop in this post, except to say that I intend this year to be one where I dance with all six of those all of the time, in whatever I am doing.

I also wish for you a great year, a conscious, thankful, playful, peaceful, loving, dance-filled  year.  With animals.  Namaste.
