Yes, it's the end of the year time to take stock in the year that's passed.
Last year I shot a TV pilot for HGTV, which was both fun and interesting~ it got picked up, then dropped~ then magazines went under forcing me to regroup ~ my work took many shifts as did my family as my kids are now older wiser and more independent. I was on the Today Show, as I charted a new career course, there were ups and downs, but all in all a great year of learning and experiences.
I made new friends and reconnected with old friends, as always a few friends surprised me with their love and devotion, and a few surprised me with bad behavior, but the human kindness always won in the end and the disappointments, were just that disappointments. All in all I stayed true to myself and surrounded myself with my fantastic family and beautiful friends, and of course great food and wine always in reach~ I wish everyone good health, great friends, good food, great wine and mostly happiness, love and great accomplishments in the new year!
Instead of the usual New Years Resolution~ this year I have decided I want to accomplish 10 things of importance to me. "Accomplish" is my word of 2010.
1. spend more time with my family~
2. embrace my passion for food and write my cookbook~
3. be less judgmental~
4. have more insight about people~
5. be patient~
6. dance more~
7. Listen to my gut~
8. smile more~
9. spend more time enjoying art~
10. enjoy the little things~
