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