"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation." Brian Tracy

Could this be put better? Or come at a better time... a time when people often reflect on the passing of the old year and make resolutions for the new.

I'm not that keen on making New Year resolutions anymore, experience has taught me something... every day should have some kind of affirmation, some goal to work towards, something to strive for... and I find that one simple goal is more achievable than high hopes that are dashed within a week or lost in among the life changing events that so often occur when you least expect.

For me laying here right now, I simply say:

"Thank you God for giving me the strength, the support, the hope, the love, the friendship and the determination to get through the past year... and please continue to give me all these things to help me make it through the next. I place my trust in you, I will never give up hope and I will be faithful to you... when I falter please give me the grace to stand up and continue on my journey knowing you are always there."

But in saying that, I also hope that 2010 will be full of great things for so many... for my friends, for my family, and you all here who read my inconsistent rambles... you all share in a part of my journey, have touched me in some way and for this I say thank you.

Go forth and let this year be a year of miracles, hope, achievement... and as always-gratitude reminding ourselves that progress is progress no matter how small or insignificant it may seem.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR, MAY 2010 BE A HAPPY YEAR, A HEALTHY YEAR, a year full of joy and hope, a year full of accomplishments and may we all fulful God's promises for us and take on the challanges He has in store for us with faith and courage.

Happy new year! Happy 2010, a new decade to strive for good health and personal growth...
