Farewell 2009...

I love how excited people get about the new year. All over Facebook and Twitter are excited people proclaiming their love to this new year. This year, I'm challenging myself to remain this excited about the new year ALL year. It seems like everybody hits the gym in January, determined to stick to their resolutions and shed some lbs in the process... but come February, their "go-get-it-ness" has faded into a small voice in the distance nudging them to trudge on. This year, instead of stating boldly what I WILL achieve in 2010, I'd rather look back at the past year and see what I DID achieve:
-Although one of my goals was to run a half marathon, I never did make it to the finish line... or the starting line for that matter. I decided that, while I do love running, I love running shorter distances :) I'll stick to 5 miles. I can do 5 miles, and still walk in the morning.
-I overcame so pretty huge struggles this past year, and am walking with my head a bit higher this year, and with MUCH more confidence.
-I fully recovered from a crazy-sudden back surgery. And am living life to the fullest, while not lifting anything TOO heavy :)
-I gave up Diet Soda. In fact, I gave up all fake sweeteners. If you look at some of my past posts, you'll realize just how huge of a feat this is.

This year I'm promising myself to live a little louder. I want to spark my creative side. I want to worry less and enjoy more. I want to have more fun (even though I have loads of fun ALL the time). I want to live with purpose and passion every single day.

What do YOU want to do this year?

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
