a soundtrack for a new year...

the time to make New Year's resolutions has come and gone... towards the end of January i like to revisit my list of things i said i'd do this year, to see how i'm doing... there's so much i want to accomplish this many spiritual, physical, intellectual, professional goals that i desire to reach... every year i like to pick a for instance, last year was "self-discipline" which was shot to you-know-where when wedding prep madness hit in the summer... this year i think my theme is going to be "change"... when i'm frustrated because i have not reached a goal, i like to assess the reason why i have not been, i have not lost that lingering 10 lbs. beacuse i've been unwilling to CHANGE my lifestyle... CHANGE is important &'s hard but it keeps things fresh & interesting ... although i know it will be a lot of work, dedication & sacrifice, i'm so excited for this endeavor at the same time....i'm tired of failing ...this year i must keep my resolve instead of let myself slip easily back into old habits... New Years are full of HOPE for me... it's a clean slate to start over new, to recreate yourself into a person you respect more and who is closer to here goes...this week i'll be sharing some of my lists of things i'm going to try to change this year

i draw a lot of inspiration from music... it's motivating... at the beginning of a New Year i like to have some great albums on hand to pep me up and keep me going when my resolution starts to's some songs i've picked for 2011

My Body by Young the Giant

The Cave by Mumford & Sons

Clementine by Sarah Jaffe

Butterflies & Hurricanes by Muse
