New Years Theme

I spent a lot of today thinking how to incorporate my New Year's theme into my day to day life. Too many "things" kept swirling around in my mind and became very overwhelming. The problem with New Years and the feeling or need to completely change yourself, your life, your habits is its too much at once. Its taken me 47 years to become the person I am today and if I want to change that, it certainly isn't going to happen the first week of 2011. What popped into my head and has been swimming around in there all day long is part of a wonderful song from the "Sound of Music":

"Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with
When you sing you begin with do re mi"

It occurred to me, that's the answer. Start at the beginning. So that's what I'm going to try to do.


  1. I totally loved that video :) And your thoughts on how to change for the new year. I'm going to try to quit smoking (yes, I'm a smoker)... It won't happen in a day, but I'm very determined. So we'll see how it goes. One day at a time. You are so good at taking the days as they come, I expect to get all kinds of confidence from you as I move along this path of mine :)

  2. That was phenomenal...and I couldn't help the tears in my eyes. I just read on the forum Diana's message that you did not get good news at the hospital today and maybe that explains the tears. I am waiting to hear and at the same time I don't want to's like the start of 2011 for you...maybe if it just doesn't come it can hold of all the bad. I love you, Shari~

  3. This was just awesome. It also brought tears to my ears. Just to see people come together like this, and how many others were moved by it.
    I love you too Shari.
