2011: Be Open

Instead of a resolutions or goals for 2011, I am going to focus on something. At first, I told myself I was going to focus on LOVE...mostly because I absolutely love New York City and I want to find love. But thanks to Amy Spencer's recent post on her Dating Optimist blog, I realized that that I cannot just "find" love. So, instead:

I am going to be OPEN.

Be OPEN to moving to New York City.
Be OPEN to love.
Be OPEN to a new job.
Be OPEN to new experiences. (Rock climbing. Weekend getaways. New friends. New Meetup groups. Anything!)

I going to focus on this really hard. I'm going to put all my thoughts out there to the universe. I'm ready for all of the above. It might take a few months or most of the year, but that's okay.

Bring in on, 2011! I'm welcoming you with open arms. :)

This is a great post. It reminds me of an article that I read in Psychology Today a while back about luck and successful people. The article says that people who are successful in life, love, career, etc. are open to the idea that something great is potentially going to happen in every encounter. They don't just go looking for it in specific places. Good luck!

Excellent goal. When you're open opportunities are drawn to you.

This is a wonderful post and a very attainable goal :) I really, truly hope you are able to move to New York; not just for yourself, but then maybe I could come visit ;) haha
