minus 8 hours til 2008.

I didn't wanna do the obligatory blog-for-the-sake-of-blogging for NYE. But last night, two dear friends and I were discussing New Years resolutions and love over Yuenglings and cocktails, and it got me to thinking a bit.

As for resolutions, I'm canceling my gym membership, and switching to pilates and weight-free only. And as it has been in years past, i'm vowing to "be more kind." again. Save money, be more decisive, and cut unnecessary sugar out of my diet.

Now for the love part. A couple of things popped into my head, and I quickly wanted to jot them here.

- Don't have expectations. It's never a good idea to plan the wedding before the 3rd date.

- Nothing you do can make "it" happen--"it" has to be organic.

- Fear is naturally apart of loving someone.

- I'm not ready for this, means, I'm not ready for this WITH YOU :-(.

- Love doesn't allow for even a drop of selfishness. Give a little...and you'll get a little back.

- Don't listen to the "shoulds." Only you know what's best for your relationship.

- Be patient with your lover--patient, not foolish. It will help you in other areas of your life.

- Say what's on your mind (within reason). It will save you from mind games, sleepless nights, and awkward silences.

Ok people...that's all from me for 2007. Happy New Year!
