Well it’s December 31st and I’m taking another moment to reflect on the past year. If you’ve read the year-end post I did a couple weeks ago you know that 2009 was a huge growing year for me. It was also a fast year. I remember in spring everyone was talking about how quickly the year was progressing at that point, and I don’t think it ever slowed down. Not for me, anyway.
The other day I overheard a couple women in my office talking about how terrible 2009 has been for everyone. There were health issues for some, money issues for a lot, and tonnes of people out of work. For most people 2009 seemed to have a dark cloud over it, but not for me. For me, this was the year of growing. It was the year of independence and freedom and embracing liberty. This was my year.
As I look back on 2009, I’m a little sad to see it go. My Sagittarian nature means I get bored quickly and I embrace change and new experiences and that’s exactly how I’ve felt over the last few weeks, but now that it’s here the only feeling I have is fear. I’m scared to move forward because I don’t know what 2010 will bring. I think good things are to come, but how can one be sure?
I can’t be sure- and that’s why I’ll stand up straight, put my shoulders back, and jump right in. I’ll embrace 2010 and whatever it brings with it. If 2009 taught me anything, it’s that I can hack it.
Happy New Year, peeps!
