For last year's words belong to last year's language...

and next year's words await another voice.
~T.S. Eliot

As 2009 approaches I have been thinking so much of my fresh start. I have so many plans for the upcoming year.

I love the idea of a new calendar to mark the new year. It is clean and unblemished with only holidays and special occasions marked inside. None of the mundane things have been marked inside or even the things that I dislike, like dental appointments.

I don't believe in resolutions because they are made to be broken, but I do have some promises to myself. In the upcoming year I promise to live a greener life, exercise to strengthen my body and soul, spend less time on the internet, and find my personal style.

That is a lot for a year, but I have an entire year, 365 days to accomplish it. It need not all be done in the first 31.

You can find the above calendar at a wonderful store on Etsy called Siska Studio.


  1. I am just trying to improve on 2008. Every year little by little, if I become more postive, or gain a new skill or achieve a goal I think I'm happy.

  2. So true. Happiness is in the small things, which is hard to remember sometimes.
