Hard to Believe...

As I get older - one thing always remains consistent...the year flies by MUCH faster. I seriously feel like it was just the other day that I was buying my house when in reality it was January. "Busy Season" was just the other day as well and here I am looking at it in the face again.  I do however hope that April 15th gets here extremely fast this year - -  after that the year has my permission to slow down to a normal speed such as the speed it was when I was a kid. It always felt like SOOO long before my next birthday would happen....SOOO long before Christmas would get here again.

I wonder what makes time go by so slow when we are little. I kept myself busy exploring the world outside of the house throughout the year; playing with friends and building forts in the back pasture. I rode my bike constantly down the street and back.  I kept my mind occupied on thoughts about all of the new experiences and explorations I was going on.  True - maybe they aren't thoughts of money issues and relationship issues like we have as adults - but still many thoughts.  Oh to be a child once again.

Here's to 2011. It is hard to believe that 2010 passed by so fast...but at the end of every year we get a chance to look forward and have hope for a better year to come.

This year:

  • I want to pay off my car loan and own my car completely.
  • I want to find something to love about everyone I come in contact with.
  • I want to pass the CPA exam.
  • I want to have more intimate dinners with my boyfriend.
  • I want to take my dog out for more walks - he deserves them.
  • I want to explain my passions in a more coherent way to myself and others.
  • I want to determine my personal theme song and dance around crazy to it at least once a week.
  • I want to change someone's life for the better.
What do you want to do in 2011? Remember that faith can make the seemingly impossible - possible!
