What's Your Top 10 for 2010?

As 2010 draws to a close, we all find ourselves taking a look at the year that was. I thought I'd end 2010 by recording my top 10 moments in 2010 for posterity. What would be on your list? Here's mine: 

1. Taking the mother of all leaps. 

2. Having a rollicking good time in a sea of espuma

3. Reaching the summit of Angel's Landing after a heart-stopping hike. 
4. Regaining strength and balance. 
5. Falling in love with surf culture at Ribeira d'Ilhas. 
6. Traveling to Portugal solo. 
7. Seeing those tassels turn, turn, turn in my first foray into burlesque! 
8. Learning how to dance, climb and spin around a pole in crazy lucite heels.
9. Surviving 14 dates in one night.
10. Crossing the finish line.
Due to the now infamous New York blizzard of 2010 and the havoc it wreaked on holiday travel, I will be somewhere up in the air when 2011 begins. But there will be no mile-high pity party. At the end of the day, I have this: I can happily close the books on 2010 knowing that I lived it the best way possible. Nothing held back and no regrets.

As we enter a new year, I hope that you'll consider making another list: one that gives your resolutions, dreams and goals a firm deadline—whether it's 30 Before 30 or 12 Before 2012. It could give your life a whole new purpose like it did mine. At the very least, it'll make your year a hell of a lot of fun!

Wishing you all a kick-ass 2011!
