A New Year Has Begun!

Akemashite omedetou! (As we would say here in Japan…)

There were so many things I wanted to write about around Christmas time, but I actually had plans for Christmas last year. (A very unusual thing for me in recent years.)

So, the Year of the Rabbit has begun… 2011 is here. Still haven’t decided on a resolution for this year yet. I wonder what would be good?

One year was to work on my weight, one year was to work on being conscious of thanking people and also saying, “You’re welcome.” One year was to work on being a bridge and connecting people.

I guess I could continue all of these year after year and keep adding another one.

Hmm… let’s see… I have so many dreams and ideas for things. (Writing a children’s book, starting an Internet business, creating a job where I could travel back and forth between Japan and the U.S. and the list goes on.)

So, for this year, I want to work hard to make one of those things reality. Not sure which it will be yet, but one of them at least. AND to stay happy and do my best to make others around me happy!!

Because life is all about love and joy and smiles… right? =)
