I've been thinking about the monthly themes I'll use for 2011, and decided to model them after Ellen Welty's article 12 Questions that Will Change Your Life.  The piece itself is a little too self-help-y for my tastes, but its overall message of reflection and life-planning seems appropriate to me right now.  So here, month by month, are my topics for 2011:

January - Try something new; step out of your comfort zone.
February - Nurture yourself.
March - Remember those who mentored you (from kindergarten on up) and make them proud.
April - March to the beat of your own drummer.
May - Spend your time - and money - on things that speak to your soul.
June - Accept imperfections - yours and everyone else's.
July - If it isn't working - stop trying to fix it; just let it go.
August - Focus on what you're good at.
September - Live the life you want.
October - Age is just a number; you're as young as you feel.
November - Reorganize your life, so that your life goals are on top.
December - Find faith in something bigger than you.
