I have so romanticized the idea of the Full Blue Moon tonight. Then I Googled "blue moon new year's eve 2009" and went here where I found out that not only is the blue moon just the second full moon in a month, but that the phrase "once in a blue moon" doesn't even have anything to do with it.
It doesn't matter, though. Tonight draws 2009 to a close and it has been a year of ups and downs, as any year has.
I went back in the blog to read some posts from the beginning of the year and I have definitely come a long way in some areas. I didn't achieve my reading goals, but I did start out strong. I am going to be revisiting that commitment to myself in 2010 - not as a resolution, but an attempt to enjoy my life more.
Some of the journey this year has led to photography, art, art journals, taking art classes, workshops, travel, new blogs to read, new friends, self-care. I am practicing more to be who I am and to live my life instead of planning for it. For me, some planning will always be involved, but not to the detriment of EN-JOYING it.
Tomorrow, I will be collaging my vision for the new year in conjunction with the Full "Blue" Moon Dreamboards.
