    I’m planning to just take it easy and spend as much time with my kids as possible. I recently had a tumor removed from my chest wall and recovery has been hard and I want to make sure I spend time with my sons.

  2. Tammy says:

    Briklin, I’m sorry to hear about your health issues but I am so happy to hear about your commitment to spend time w/ your sons! A woman I know (not well) found out a month ago she had lung cancer and she passed away two days ago. She has 2 sons. It makes me so sad and it’s such a wake-up call to give extra love, attention and hugs to those I love. Happy 2010- I hope it’s a wonderful year for you and your family.

  3. KellieS says:

    This year is one of transformation for me. My direction is solid and the path is opening up. I am getting credentials for life-coaching and working on the business that I should have been doing all along.

    My blog is growing and will soon be expanding to include a new brother site called Men’s Life Link.

    I’m not going to sweat the aging thing. I love where I am in life.

    It is also a year of priorities and sticking to them. Love more….that includes myself.

  4. Tammy says:

    Awesome Kellie! Sounds like you have it all mapped out! Best of luck and we can’t wait to see how your year progresses!

  5. Patty says:

    Love your blog! I have spent the last 24 years taking care of my family and while I wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything, like many women I neglected myself along the way. In 2010 I will learn to take care of myself more, get more pedicures and learn to love being a girl again.

  6. I’m planning on kicking my Arbonne business into high gear, really getting serious about it. Not only is this good *financially* but it will force me to keep up on things for me that I put off (as most moms do) like, haircuts and color, nails, making sure that when I walk out the door I look presentable at the least. Because who wants a beauty and skin care consultant that looks like she was dragged behind a bus??

    Happy New Year Tammy!
