New Year, New Decade, New Dreams
As I get over the excitement of seeing another year, another decade...the parties are over, the champagne bottles are empty and the headache is fading away, I can't help but think about possibilities of 2010. Not to be mushy or super introspective or anything but, this is a new DECADE, what wasn't working last year and what can I do different this year?
2009 was one of the most difficult years of my life. There were losses and a couple of life changing events but still made it through. There were some amazing strides as well. I went to Burgundy, France to attend the Burgundy Wine School were I passed exams to become a Certified Burgundy Instructor. I passed my WSET Advanced exam. I started a wine consulting/wine education business and a wine tasting club.
So, what dreams do I have for 2010? Over a glass of Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Grande Reserve (I am so loyal to Burgundy!) I dream that my new business will become prosperous and flourish. I dream that my tasting club becomes one of the best 'things to do' on a Sunday afternoon. I dream of becoming a much better writer and being more diligent with writing my blog posts. I dream of writing a wine-related book, as soon as I come up with a topic. I dream that I am at peace with myself. I dream that I will continue to need my clothes taken in from all my hours at the gym ;-)
Well, my glass is empty so it's time to get off this computer and make these dreams a reality!! Happy New Year!!
