This the last thing I write this year......

....so I'm going to keep it short.

The past 364 days has been a testing time for so many people; myself included.
Although I find myself reflecting in familiar surroundings, my mind is in a much better place. This year has revealed many truths; some about myself, some about those around me.
I have met a huge number of people this year and formed newer and stronger bonds with the people in my life who truly matter, people who I now know I will honor and cherish for the rest of my life.
This past year I have gone those extra few steps outside of my comfort zone and discovered many a time, that those few steps, were not quite far enough. I now accept that I can't please everybody and have a new appreciation for the quote:

"To the world you may be nobody, but to somebody, you could be the world"

I've learned just how important it is to invest and I mean REALLY invest in the people and the things you love most - give them your time; not your money, give them your care; not your procrastination.
I'm convinced my experiences this year have set me up for a truly amazing 2009:
I have shed the baggage, I have cut loose the dead ends and I promise myself I will do more and be a better person for it.

To all of those who have contributed, the english language is too limited to honor your positive and abundent influence on my life, but with a phrase you will recognise - I thank you.

See you on the other side!

Mr. Devo

A beautifully honest post-and a great attitude to start a new year off with.

When it comes down to it time and love is all we really have to give, so its best we share them with people who are most deserving and mean the most to us.
