New Year

We're going out later for what's turned into a New Year tradition of meeting up with three other families and their kids. One family won't be there, but we'll be thinking of them.

It has been a funny, busy year, where I saw friends far less than before. I went to just a handful of gigs, saw a few films, watched a little bit of TV and yet gorged on what I'll have to describe as the Greater Internet. I did lots and lots of exercise. Became very very boring.

In the last three or four months, I've been buried in business coaching, trying to tackle all the demons that keep me poor. *g* And the result is that right now I feel I'm on a turning point. There's a lot still to do, but I feel so much better about it. Ready to do things. There's been a frameshift.

I think my heroes this year have been people who are committed to change. I'm thinking of [personal profile] unblinkered going after her shop and making it take shape week by week. Folk on my friendslist making massive internal changes. Some of the people I met in my business coaching, who have taken the lessons we're all learning, and started to visibly alter the entire way that they respond in their business. There are so many times when personal change seems impossible, even when it's sorely needed. It does happen.

So that's my wish for 2011: to have the courage to keep faith with my vision, and do the hard work that will make it happen. And if that's something you need in your life, I wish it for you too. Don't ever settle for a crap, unhappy reality.

If you're settled and sorted I will simply raise a dram and drink to your good health.

One of my Christmas presents was a CD of the BBC Live Lounge Sessions - originals and covers by all sorts of people. This one niggles at me. Kylie Minogue, covering Hurts. (and if you need the deeply 80s-influenced original, with cheesy video, you can find it here). Dramatic and sentimental.

Happy New Year, when it comes. *hugs*
