First Day

I love first days.

The first day of a new semester, the first day after thanksgiving (hello christmas music), the first day at a new job, the first day of vacation...

They all having the same anticipation, clean-slate feeling that you can't find anywhere else!

Today is my favorite first day of all.... The first day of the year!

I know that it is just another day in the winter months, but the idea that we all get a fresh start is rejuvenating and always makes me excited!

I know that we all make some resolutions, whether we admit them or not. So I thought I would share some of mine, so you all can keep me accountable :).

1. Be Brave! I'm about to embark on the overseas adventure of a lifetime but I need to keep saying yes to every opportunity I am presented with!

2. Be Open! I need to go out on a limb, there are so many wonderful people out there but how can I let myself fall if I never trust anyone to catch me?

3. Be Myself! I want to work on doing things that I want to do. I know lots of people who give great advice, and sometimes I forget that the one whose opinion matter the most is mine!

What are your resolutions for 2012? Did you do anything fun to celebrate?
