Happy New Year everyone.
I am very excited for new beginnings. This is what I love about being Jewish and American. You sort of get two fresh starts every year. The world's New Year and the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah. Both of these holidays provide great opportunity for renewal.
This past Rosh Hashanah, as you may know from my previous blog posts, my world indeed changed significantly. I accepted a new job, which then led to us moving to a new city and home and, hence, a new journey began. So, for the past few months since it's been somewhat hectic getting all the pieces of our lives managed and put into place I haven't had much time to sit and contemplate and think about this coming year's goals and wishes.
So, I look at this year, 2011, as my next opportunity to establish new direction. It's also the year that I turn the big 4-0.
While I am not one to really commit to resolutions I am open to trying to see things from a fresher perspective, continue to build the path for my family already created and to find opportunities for my growth and learning, and to be sure to set aside much time for play with Sarah and Daniel, and for me as well. I especially look forward to getting my butt back into the gym and also on the dance floor.
Hey, Ricky Martin, if you are seeking a back-up dancer who can really shake it, let me know. I've got the goods and I intend to use them much this year and moving forward. And, for those of you that know me well know that the dance floor, whether it be a club or in my living room, is where I am most free and able to lose myself.
While this year will center much around my daughter, as she is an integral part of my life, I look forward to finding more much-needed time for me. And, this is not selfish. As parents, it's imperative that we find time for ourselves to let loose. It's good for us, our partners and our kids.
So, let's toast to a new year of life, love, happiness, good health and lots of dancing.
Happy New Year!!!
