since brunch with T and MP this morning, i've been contemplating a New Year's resolution.
thus far, i've come up with nothing solid.
of course there are the usual, "lose XX lbs" and "find a job i don't loathe" resolutions, but i need to think bigger. or "Dream Big," which was the theme of my urban family's New Year's To-Do List just a couple of years ago.
the curious thing is that, back when life was pretty perfect and i had few to no complaints, i could come up with so many resolutions and to-do's, including big ones. now that i need to be dreaming big and coming up with new goals and new plans, i am having trouble coming up with them. maybe life follows the principle of inertia -- i.e., a life in forward motion tends to stay in forward motion; whereas, a life that has slowed down or stagnated tends to stay in that state.
and just like that, my resolution occurred to me.
gain momentum. move forward. stay in motion.
but first i need to find an outfit for a friend's NYE party, and i need to ring in 2011 with a bunch of great people, a little too much vodka, and maybe even a bang.*
*like fireworks, or whatever.
