The Reckoning

2009 is over and 2010 is here, finally. After bidding a fond and very festive farewell, to the year that was 2009, in the form of a party that kept me up to an ungodly hour; today I am ready to start getting shit done. In keeping with my promise to myself, I have decided to challenge myself and up the ante.

Here's what I have cooking up!

1) In order to really develop my writing skills, I have decided that every single day, for the whole month of January, I will write a new post. No matter how banal or useless, I will post once a day. I think it is imperative that I write every single day, only good can come of it.

2) Project365. I came across this, and it sounded absolutely brilliant! Take a photo a day for the whole year. I am the girl who takes enough pictures but they rarely see the light of day. I either never get the film developed or just forget I even took the photos and they linger, forgotten, on my memory stick. So this year I am going to take a picture a day and share it here with you. Most of them will be food pictures but lately I am seeing the beauty of my city, all around me, so lots of that will pop up here too. And, again, some of these pictures will be absolutely useless and sometimes rushed; not to be negative, I just happen to know myself, so I am just being real.

3) I realize that I have some seriously lofty aspirations for this year, and inspiration is key, so every day I am going to find a quote that speaks to me and live that day with the chosen quote in mind. It's simple, every morning when I wake up, I will find an inspirational quote and recite it to myself all day; I will also post it here, because we could all use a little inspiration.

So let's get this baby going!

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau

Fitting, don't you think?!
