I am really looking forward to 2011. I have big plans--big plans that I am excited about.
Here are some things that are going to happen in the new year:
My burlesque show is going to open and be a smash hit. I love this show. I love that it is an open run and I can add new dances when I like. I love that we have to keep it fresh. I love that I get to work with these amazing performers. I love that I get to workshop the coquettes solos with them. I love that my 27 year dance career is better than ever. I love that I am getting deeper into the burlesque scene. I love that I never stress about rehearsals or the work involved, and that I come home feeling like a million bucks.
I am going to focus on athleticism. I am going to be dancing a lot. I am going to be teaching a lot. I want to go to two dance classes a week. I want to get back into boxing, whether it is going to be in a class or with a freestanding heavy bag in my sunroom that I don't yet have. I am going to run a lot. I am going to complete the Soldier Field 10. I am going to do a sprint distance triathlon. I am going to be healthy and better than ever.
I am going to have more confidence. I am going to dress well. I am going to take care in my appearance and how I behave around people.
I am going to see the people that I love. I am going to see my brother at least twice before he moves off of the continent. I am going to have dinners with friends. I am going to enjoy my time with my loved ones.
I am going to get out of debt. We are so close I can taste it!
I am going to go to Paris. Yep. We are going.
I am going to manage my stress.
I am going to eat a lot of great food and drink amazing things.
I am going to laugh a lot.
Happy New Year, everybody. Thank you all for being you.
