Happy New Year everyone!!!
The start of a new year is usually the time for self-reflection and coming up with (mostly impossible) resolutions to achieve. This year, I have a resolution that I have every intention of keeping AND every reason to.
My New Year's resolution: Zen in 2010. Zen in 2010 means that throughout the year, I am going to make every attempt to achieve "enlightenment" in the sense of helping others and developing myself personally and spiritually. Too long I've wanted to make a positive change in the world and I haven't felt like I've done anything toward that goal. I'm going to change that in 2010!
The first step to achieving Zen in 2010? My "All's Well That Ends Well" fund-raising project! My goal is to raise $5000 by April 5, 2010 to help build a freshwater well in a village in a developing country, with YOUR help! Please visit my fund-raising page to make your tax-deductible donation, 100% of which will go DIRECTLY to the freshwater well project! On behalf of the BILLION people on this planet who don't have access to clean drinking water, THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance for your generosity!
Also as part of my Zen in 2010 goal, I am also going to endeavor to be as good a friend to YOU as you have been to me. Time and again I am struck with the awe in knowing how truly incredible the people I am surrounded by are, and it's high time I start reflecting that incredible-ness back at the people who matter the most in my life.
This is probably going to be the toughest part of my Zen in 2010 goal as I'm going to be halfway around the world from most of you, and well, let's be honest, YOU have certainly set the bar high!
I'm going to do my best but I need you to send me your address!
Again, happy new year and don't forget to make your donation to All's Well That Ends Well! Together, we WILL make a difference!
