New Beginnings

January.  It is still January, right? 

2011 is off to a zipping start.  We've already taken a short vacation with the kids, had a colorguard tournament, tennis tournament and high school finals for the first semester.  Ugh.  I'm exhausted. LOL

I'm also busy working out all the kinks on a new exciting venture.  I've been reading alot of books on how to deal with failure and the need to take risks in order to succeed.  No more sitting back and wondering what would happen "if".  I'm actually going to take that next step and see.  Yikes! I'm excited and terrified all at the same time.  Struggling through the blasted learning curve at the moment, but once the initial shock wears off I'll be good to go.

Hoping to have the big reveal ready by April.  There, I put it out there.  A deadline.  Yep.  Now it's set in stone. :)

Best of luck to everyone in 2011!  Here's to looking back at the end of the year and saying, "I'm so glad I took that risk."

You go girl, take that risks! We never know what we can achieve if we don't try. I love your outlook! It's the kind of attitude that made me decide to enter one of my novels in ABNA!

Oh, Heather! That's awesome!! Fingers crossed for you!! :) I for one have never been good at taking risks. Although, if I sit back and think about it, the risks I did take were some mighty big ones. And they didn't hurt at all. They actually turned out pretty good. Maybe not how I thought they would, but eventually even better. :) Risks = Success! (eventually) LOL

Thanks, Walt! No snow here yet in Houston, but it is forcasted for Friday. Oh what havoc will erupt with even just a few flakes. LOL

I'm enjoying your blog and wishing you a wonderful year as well!
