Thoughts for the day

So, as previously confessed via Twitter, I tend to think a LOT more in the winter time. Perhaps because it's cold and sometimes freezing, and thinking some what keeps me warm, depending on what I'm thinking of... yeah, not only that, it's the end of the year and I am most definitely thinking up big plans for the next year. Wow, now that I think about it, that whole "depending on what I'm thinking about" in ref to me keeping warm was awkward and sounded SO WRONG... smh... lol. Anyway, I think I may possibly be ready for all this. I mean, at this point, I can't wait until I'm ready, I gotta GO GO GO. I need to get outta that habit of the whole "I'm ready" and "I'm not ready" business... ugh. I just don't want that to hinder me from great things. That used to bug me about him, and now I find myself doing it. Anyhow, I will be writing down goals again, and as a matter of fact I should do a check of all things I've done... but, for SURE, I am definitely going to blog up my goals for next year. I'm attackin' 2010 full throttle. I gotta love myself enough to do it that way.

*cheers to 2010*
