It's a New Year, Twenty-Eleven!!

2010 Gone, let it go...  WELCOME 2011!  Such possibilities a new year holds for us earthlings.  As far as resolutions go, I think I'll just keep the one I made last year.  I was to compliment others on something about them, their clothes what they were doing, etc. when I noticed it.  See, we all think things and rarely say it for whatever reason but I just decided that I was going to make an effort to SAY IT not just think it.  I know in a small way it brightened several people's day when I complimented them.  I also think that visiting other bloggers and when we leave comments, we are doing just that!  

How has blogging changed your life?  For me it has been wonderful new friendships, like a journey across the rainbow to find not a pot of gold, but something much better, the sharing of incredible talent, creativity, inspiration and ingenuity that is truly abundant in our world.  I've been awestruck at the beauty, laughed till I cried at the humor, been enlightened and changed my mind about things, all this I've found on blogs.  Maybe that is the gold we search for!  Thank you for that, thanks for contributing to my life and making it richer!

This reminds me of the song "Unwritten" by Natahsa Bedingfield:

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

It's a new year, and it's YOUR life, go write it!

I love that song and sing it at the top of my lungs in the car. ;)

I have the same feeling about blogging--a great way to reach across the miles and make friendships we never would have dreamed about.
