NEW YEAR, NEW, IMPROVED ME.

Last year was pretty uneventful to say the least. No new job, no new hobbies or interests, no new friends (edit: I did meet with the lovely Susu Paris Chic, the fun folks from the Arctic Circle group and Finland Center),  no travels (edit: oops, I forgot I did travel to Finland in February to see the fam), nobody died, nobody got married, nobody had a baby. One big thing worth mentioning is going back to vegetarian (80% vegan) in 2010. Very proud of that decision.
This is why 2011 is going to bring great changes and challenges, experiences and opportunities. New friends, new passions, new cities, new towns, new things to learn. 
I've set few goals for 2011 that I'm really going to work for. Here they are: 
1. Become a yogi and include regular exercise in my life, even if it's just going for 30 min walk
2. Find a new job (that I enjoy to do)
3. Travel somewhere spiritual (India, Thailand, Bali or Vietnam)
4. Start painting (art)
5. Cook gourmet meal at least twice a week
6. Read at least one book a month
7. Create and spend more quality time with my husband
This list will probably grow as time passes and I find new ways to improve myself and my life. All I can say is that I'm excited for the New Year and hope that there will be big, good changes coming our way. One big change that's already secured will happen this coming summer. But more about it then. Let's not jinx it... 
What are your goals for 2011?

  1. Hyviä tavoitteita sinulla, toivon että saat ne toteutettua, listasin myös itse omia tavoitteitani blogissani. Näin syksyllä elokuvan Eat, pray, love ja sen jälkeen tuli suuri halu matkustaa Intiaan ja Balille, mutta ehkä joskus tulevaisuudessa..

  8. Tekisitkö jonkun ihanan postauksen Nykistä, mulla on niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin kaupunkia ikävä?!! Missä muuten tapasit miehesi, jos siis on sieltä kotoisin? Ei sillä, että itse olisin vailla, mutta jännä muuten tietää... :)

  9. Hey Lady Laetitia,

    ma en edelleenkaan ole nahnyt muuta kun sen Eat, Pray, Love leffan trailerin, mutta se jo sai hirvean matkakuumeen ja muutoksenhalun aikaan. Ostin kirjan jo pitkaan ennen leffan ulostuloa, mutta en ole vielakaan paassyt loppuun. Olen niin huono lukemaan kirjoja. Todella hyva ostamaan niita kylla...

    Hi Krystal,

    yes, I saw your list and we're on the same track. Let's do it!

    Heippa Chatrin,

    ma olin vahan pettynyt viime vuoteen, mutta annan sen olla vaan ponnahduslautana tahan uuteen ihanaan.

    Hi Sara,

    thank you so much and wishing you the same!

    Terve Kristina,

    kiva kuulla etta sulla on tyonhaku alkanut mukavasti. Ma olen tanaan lahetellyt muutamia hakemuksia ja pari soittoa tyonvalittajiltakin tullut joten kai niita tyopaikkoja on siella jossakin tarjolla. Lycka till!

    Stacey,

    thank you dear! Happy Saturday!

    Sam,

    thanks so much!

    Hei Elena,

    taalla on niin harmaata ja pimeeta, mutta jos ensi viikolla aurinko nayttaytyisi niin otan kameran mukaan ja teen jonkin Nyki-postauksen lievittamaan ikavaasi. :)

  12. I'm hoping to re-start yoga this year too. I'm looking forward to it, it's been a long time since I've practiced regularly.

  13. No new friends...?! And what about me wee;)

    I totally have loved getting to know you. Too bad the Pond is between us. But still.

    Art is a goal of mine too. Really finding my style.

  14. Oh no Susu! I guess I had decided in my mind that 2010 was lame and kind of forgetting all the good things that happened. I'm so happy I met you in person and now that I think deeper I actually met a lot of new fun people last year. How does one let negativity take over the mind like that. Gosh, o got some work to do on this. And need to revise my posting too. More edits...
