Probably my main reason for sunning in the new year will be that the sun may reduce stress, according to this review in the Medical Food News. Of course I was under the impression that the sun gave me Vitamin D, not Vitamin C so I'm questioning the article and apparently have a lot to learn about our sun.

The Sun is essential, but according to this article, it's dying. So instead of cursing it this summer when it's 110 degrees with the heat index, I'll feel sorry for the beloved ball of fire while applying my SPF15..
So now for my much needed resolutions:
1. ENTER THE ZEN ZONE.

Realize that I must surround myself with those wonderful family and friends I have been blessed with, and remove the negativity from my life. I'm out to achieve ZEN people, so wish me luck.
2. GET IN THE GYM WORKIN' ON MY FITNESS

3. FINISH THINGS THAT I LOVE.
Work on my Eco Friendly Art Gallery site. This is a new site I'm creating to focus on those artists who go above and beyond to use eco friendly offerings in their work. Not only those who are in my Etsy Recyclers Guild team, but those artists who spread their green-ness all over. This is going to take me some time because I have so many other assignments due, but once I get the site up, it'll be a great place to blog about new eco-artwork.
4. PUT "IT" TO REST.

I must try to come to terms with the death of my mother, and the fact of that I may never have the answers. I may never have the power to hunt down the answers that I seek in her honor or have experts review her case. Sadly, I won't have the power to prevent something like this from happening to someone else's family, not even yours,, thanks to a litlle obstacle we'll call in my horrible Pig Latin attempt "holeass-ay stepfather-ay." I was never one to hide my true feelings so in order to deal with #4, I'll just have to apply resolution #1 and #2.
