Happy New Year, everyone!
Hope that this year is filled with more happiness, inspiration, comfort, and growth than the last.
I know that we sometimes spend our time making resolutions but I think it's necessary for us to appreciate how far we have already come.
2010 taught me:
how to trust my own instincts
to distinguish between what is best for me from what others want for me
to write a query letter
to accept my eternal contradictions and allow them to propel me forward
to critique poetry--mine and others
to differentiate between Southern and Northern Indian classical music
to appreciate song lyrics in a new way
to self edit my novel on many levels
how to study my religion---and others--- from various angles
to study and dissect philosophy
how to do a smoky eyeshadow look
to find peace in traveling alone---on buses, trains, and planes---each mode of transportation providing its own appeal
what it means to truly meditate and do yoga
Cheers to 2010 and 2011!
