Thoughts for the New Year

As 2010 comes to an end
and with 2011 just around the corner,
many thoughts go through my mind.
I thought of my most recent trip
with my sister.
It was to the
Big Bend National Park
 in west Texas, so
I decided to change my header photo
to one I took out there on the trip.
I was up in the,
what they call "the basin",
looking out "the window".
I had just had a very healthy meal,
and was sitting, relaxed,
enjoying the most beautiful view,
which looked down into
Terlingua.
This photo is now up to remind me daily
of the following,
for the new year.....
enjoy the little things,
relax and don't be stressed out,
get out in the outdoors more often,
be with family as often as I can,
eat healthier,
see the beauty that is around me,
walk more,
be inspired,
create from what inspires me,
look more closely,
listen intently,
use all my senses to the fullest,
learn something new every day,
have an open heart,
and
savor each day!

Wishing you all a
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Yvonne

Ditto, I'm inspired by your lovely post. It merits printing and posting where I will see it each morning -- thank you! Your photo looks like one they use on one of Comcast's music channels -- Soundscapes. But your photo is much better!
