Happy New Years! 365-9 #1

A friend of mine decided to challenge herself by blogging every day for all of 2009, even if it's just one word. The "365-09 Challenge". Intrigued, I have decided to joing the challenge along with my friend Harriet in England. We will see how it goes.

Not to be cliche', but I do have a few New Year's resolutions.
1. Use the exercise room at my apartment complex in an effort to be more active and physically fit. I figure without a job and without a working car, I will have lots of time to do this.
2. Write poetry. It ain't going to write itself and anyway, my rants sound so much better in rhyme.
3.Have an optimistic outlook and take one day at a time.
4. Go on a few dates. Any takers out there?

I've been watching a lot of Joan of Arcadia episodes lately and the last episode I watched had this in it. I really like it and I think it sets a great tone for the next year.

"This scroll, there are no easy answers in here. It’s basically a book of questions. Something that makes us keep searching for a way to make sense of this mess. And just dealing with a lot of questions, that takes a lot of guts when there’s no guarantee that there will be answers. And I just hope I’m up for it."

This is what God says later in the show: "See, it’s not about answers, it’s about asking the right questions."

JoA has so many words of wisdom. This is also one of my favorites. You may enjoy James Pate's blog here: http://jamesbradfordpate.blogspot.com/ "Go on a few dates. Any takers out there?" - I don't anticipate that you'll have a problem. If I were 25 years younger and didn't live on the east coast, I'd give you a call. :)
