Did you ever have one of those years in which you looked up one day and while it felt like June, realized it was December? Well, that’s me this year. Time has flown for a variety of reasons, not all of them good, but while I can say 2008 has been a challenging year, I can also say I survived it. Which, trust me, is a big deal. The challenges I’ve faced have made me not be as accessible to readers and for that I apologize. Hopefully, 2009 has its mind set to flow smoothly along the course I have set for it.
I’m heading into 2009 carrying the good from 2008 with me, leaving the bad behind and embracing the possibilities of the New Year with a smile. Though I’ll be working like a demon through the Holidays, I’m still going to enjoy the time with my family and friends. There’s nothing like the collective energy of the holidays to remind us of the potential for happiness we hold within. The happiness that comes from the embrace of a loved one, the laughter of friends, the excitement of possibilities.
For all of you, in all the ways you celebrate and with whom all you celebrate, I wish you comfort of love, the joy of laughter, and the blessing of hope. Happy Holidays!
