January 1, 2007

The New Year has arrived and I am fighting the urge to begin this entry with a list of regrets and instead will use this occasion to express hope, determination and faith.
I hope I can lose the extra fifteen pounds I’ve accumulated in the three years since HH was born and I pretty much stopped doing many of the beneficial things I used to do like eat right, exercise regularly and write each and every morning.
I am determined to maintain a creative and positive outlook and to approach each day as an opportunity to create something worthwhile and to make someone happy.
And I have faith, faith that I have the self-discipline to execute this plan successfully and that if I do I will be rewarded with a better self-image, a more rewarding experience of life and another chance to fit into the jeans I keep hidden away under the sweaters in the back of my bottom drawer.
