With a blink of an eye, 2010 comes to an end. This year was the most eventful for me because I celebrated a milestone birthday, lost a job, sold a house, lost a family member, rekindled relations with extended family as well as travelled to some interesting destinations and some not so interesting. I admit I experienced too much and from it learned alot in the course of 365 days.
One thing I must say, thanks to maturity and an unexplainable sense of self-control (which I think is associated with maturity), I was able to cope with the “personal” events which unfolded during the course of the year and in a way survived the outcome(s) with minimal damage to my mental health .
As I result of 2010, I have decided to pass up on making New Years resolutions altogether so that I am not too disappointed in myself, should I not be able to uphold the commitment. Instead, I have set some flexible goals for myself, which I am going to do everything in my power to reach throughout 2011, no matter what destiny has in store for me.
So, with that said, Happy New Year everyone!!! Have a safe and wonderful celebration no matter how you plan on ringing in the New year. Remember the basics, don’t drink and drive, take a moment to remember all our troops abroad and if there is room in your life, adopt a pet from a shelter and if not, consider planting a tree in memory of someone very special to you.
