Kind Countdown to 2010

I recently sat and read my New Year Resolutions...from 1989 to the present. It is fun to see how much things change...and how much they stay the same.

I am still thinking about what I want to create in my life in 2010 and what will go on this year's vision board. (Lots of *dreams* came true in 2009, so I know the importance of setting the intention. I also know, however, that manifesting dreams requires action, determination, and willingness to risk - therefore, one must choose wisely.) Regardless of the details, I know that I want to be KIND...or should I say KINDER...or should I say LIVE KIND.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I received Alicia Silverstone's new book The Kind Diet for Christmas. (Actually, I received it twice!). I have been inspired by both the book and her new website - The Kind Life). Alicia, Kris Carr (of Crazy Sexy Life), and other Superheros will share their tips for healthy living as part of a "21-Day Vegan Kickstart" hosted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine beginning on January 1. I have already signed up! The first step of many to a Kinder 2010.

Let the Kind Countdown begin.

Here's to a kinder 2010! I wish that was a resolution everyone would make, what a noble, beautiful goal. I'm definitely working on being kinder by trying to be more patient! It's hard but I'm working on it.

I have heard great things about Silverstone's new book, I'll have to check it out.

Voracious, I too can work on being more patient. Will add that to my Kind Plan! :) Wishing you all good things and more dreams fulfilled in 2010!!

Oh my.........that 21 day kick off sounds like a fantastic thing to do. I put on a whopping 5 lbs over the holiday and am feeling not so great. But leaving on assignment to a very cold place and know I won't be able to do anything to tricky. Yuk.

Maryam, I can't say that I haven't already fallen off of this 21-day kick-start, but I guess the trick is to also be Kind to myself and just keep trying! :) I'll be interested in hearing about your very cold destination. Bring a hat...a colorful scarf wouldn't hurt either!
