Farewell 2009, it has been a good one- the love, tears, laughter, peace, friendship.....

I have read a number of posts on various blogs relating to the New Year and New Year Resolutions. Do you make any New Year Resolutions?  I was just reading Laurie Anne's post from Rebel Blossom about making a list of things to accomplish in 2010 and I have decided to make a list of goals/dreams for 2010. As the saying goes

A goal is a dream with a deadline

but I have also read that a goal without a plan is just a wish, so I will plan my dreams, and I am being realistic. I am not dreaming of winning the lottery or something silly like this.
So why not set goals and reach for the moon, because if you don't make it, you'll land among the stars. Anthony Robbins said that 'setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible'.

So whether you make New Year Resolutions, make a list of things to accomplish, or a list of goals or dreams, remember that if you don't like something change it and if you can't change it, change the way you think about it! So maybe you will make some minor changes in your life for the New Year.

Oprah Winfrey once said
Cheers to a New Year and another change for us to get it right 

and we all know that the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement. So whatever your resolutions, changes, targets, goals or dreams are for the New Year I hope you all achieve what you want and have a Wonderful New Year in 2010.

And remember in the end, It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years

  5. What a lovely blog you have here. I like that Quote, A goal is a dream with a deadline. I think I shall make a list of goals for myself as well. I wish you and yours a very Happy 2010 and best of luck on realizing your goals!!

  6. This is the one of the best post I have read for the new year. I so agree with you and glad I stopped by here to wish you a Happy New Year too.
    You ask me on my site if I had just recently moved to the country. No, I have actually been here almost 3 years. My daughter gave me a digital for Christmas and eveyone has been wanting to see where I live so I just now was able to share these pictures. I had to leave my home in town after my divorce and miss it at times.
    Next week I hope to post pictures of the outside. The home is over a 100 years old and sits among old old Oak trees.
    Happy New Year
    I love your site

  7. Happy new year to you too! I loved your new years heartening post! I hope 2010 is your year :) x

  8. Happy New Year. I enjoyed reading your post on the importance of goals. Your Lincoln quote is one of my favorites.
