52 Wishes for the New Year

The beginning of a new year always seems to send me into a reflective and thoughtful state of mind.  As part of a holiday gift for a friend, I decided to write her 52 individual wishes for the coming year – one for each week in 2011.  It got my gears turning.  So, instead of encouraging anyone to make “resolutions” I’m encourage you to dust off your dreams and place them back on track.  Writing them down and hang it on the refrigerator or place it on your desk.  Read it from time to time – just to remind you who you are and what mattered to you when the year began.  Remember – if you don’t have dreams – they can’t come true.  Here are my wishes for 2011, in no particular order:
