Good Bye 2008 Hello 2009
A long December indeed ... I really don't like to write about my own personal health. The last thing we need is more complaining on the internets, but I would like to leave a note to my future self when I read this: December 2008 was terrible for me. I was probably sick for 90% of the time and just when I thought I made it out of the woods, something stronger knocks me out.
I missed a lot of things this past holiday season and oddly enough I missed quite a few things last Christmas as well (India trip). I guess this year I was looking forward to that warm feeling when the whole family is around and enjoying the time off. But somehow with everyone's schedule, that only lasted for 1 whole day. And going forward, I don't know if it will ever happen again. I really should not be surprised. I guess it's time to grow up.
The only shopping I did was to force myself to Macy's and JCPenney to find a suit. A very concrete reminder of the upcoming functions of 2009. And as for this new year, I no longer believe in resolutions timed on a periodic occurrence. However I do think that the turn of the year provide a good time for reflection. Last year started with anticipation and potential, but ended with huge disappointment (I wish I was only referring to finances). I just hope that next year when I'm forcing myself to write something, I will look back more fondly at the time passed.

I'm sure you will find something to cherish when you look back, we all do… however bad you may think it was now, today! I do hope you have a prosperous year 2009.
I agree with the resolution timing, it should come naturally and I think it's okay if you break it once in a while as long as you remember the motive behind the resolution and try!
