Reverse Resolutions 2011

Sometimes as you look forward to a new year and think about the mountain you want to climb,
it's very nice to look backwards and feel good about how far you've already come.

9 - Love my family.
They are the best thing in my life.
8 - Focus on making the world a better place.

Thank you so much for joining this adventure with me.
December was a very happy month
in large part due to the kindness that you shared with the world, and then with me.

There. That felt good.
What did YOU accomplish last year?

First, what a beautiful family.

Great idea, the reverse resolutions. I finally, for the first time in my life, took a real art class. By real, I mean, formal, college credit, lots of work as well as exams. It was Color Theory. Science, history, art appreciation, as well and lots of painting exercises. Loved it.

I love your idea of Reverse Resolutions. All too often we only focus on what we have not done and forget all we have accomplished. Thank you for bringing it to the front of our minds.
