Many people make resolutions, wishes or express their hopes for new and different things in the coming year. While I’m still looking forward to 2010, if there is any good mojo left I’m happy to pass it on to others.
You see I had a pretty great 2009. When I think of where I was a year ago and where I am now, I am completely astounded.
First, I worked through a health-related issue that took a lot of work and determination. As with all life changes you can never take the credit yourself. I have many friends that provided help, encouragement and kept me on track. I really expected to take at least another year before to get to where I am today.
Second, While I have many special people in my life, I added a couple more this year. As a person who measures themselves by the quality of the people around me – I am truly blessed.
Next, I got out and involved in more things this year. Part of feeling better and having friends is getting out and doing things. Whether it is guys night with some good friends or a Saturday morning with me and an airplane – it really feels good. One of my favorite expressions is “you always need to remember the fundementally cool things about being you” – got to take some of my own advice.
While there are still things I can do better – and I don’t intend to stop trying. Hoping for a job change in 2010, find a few more challenges, maybe pick up some new skills both personally and professionally. Travel to some places I haven’t been.
To God or any other higher power out there, if there are extra blessings or wishes that you are passing out with the flipping of the calendar please look for some other worthy folks, my answer is – No Thanks – I’m good.
Happy New Year.
