Welcoming 2009!

I love the New Year! With a new year comes renewed excitement, hope, strength, and courage! I have so many things I want to try, see, and accomplish in 2009. I'm not sure I will get them all done, but I am going to have a great time trying! Here are my 2009 resolutions.
  • To be a better Christian and to develop a closer relationship with the Lord. I am a Christian, but I want to grow and further my Christian journey.
  • To adopt a healthier lifestyle. Yes, I want to lose weight, but I want to do more than just lose weight.
  • To learn how to manage my finances better and pay off credit card debt.
  • To de-clutter. This includes my house, my car, my office, and my life in general. I have already started on this resolution.
  • To be better organized.
  • To be on time (especially for work).
  • To be better about staying in touch with friends and family.
  • To stop worrying so much. (Let go and Let God)
  • To be a little more adventurous.
I think this is all of my resolutions. I may come up with more later! :) And because I love making lists, here are a few things I want to do in 2009!
  • Visit the new baby panda at Zoo Atlanta.
  • Visit the King Tut Exhibit.
  • Visit the Terracotta Warriors exhibit.
  • Re-visit the Georgia Aquarium
  • Visit the new World of Coke.
  • Take a wine tasting class with Michael.
  • Improve my sewing skills.
  • Take my mom to NYC.
  • Visit New Orleans.
  • Become a mentor.
This is the short list. There are tons of other exciting things that I want to see and try. Welcome 2009! I can't wait to see what you have in store for me!

I like your to do list for 2009.

We've been to New Orleans twice. I wish I lived there. That town really speaks to me. Love the food, music, people, stores, gardens, buildings, spirit and history. If you like music, they have a music festival every year that's wonderful.

You resolutions are wonderful, and similar to mine, although I have yet to blog about them.

And I love the idea of making a list of things to accomplish in 2009! I think I might borrow that idea.

Happy new year.
