Wow, it’s 2008 already. Not that the new year coming was a surprise, Christmas was a week ago, so it’s not like we didn’t expect New Year’s to be right around the corner, you know? 🙂
On the other hand, I hardly felt like I ever got a grip on 2007. It was here, stuff happened, and then it was gone. 2007 was a strange year. There were quite a few changes that came about during the year, and most of them were pretty unexpected. I didn’t go into 2007 thinking I’d be building a career in Litigation Support, or that some of the friendships in my life on line and off would develop the way they did. In fact, I really thought 2007 would be a development year, going into 2008, which would be the year of change. After all, 2008 is the year I’ll turn 40 in. Not that I’m expecting a mid life crisis or anything (though I still have 6 months to work on that before I hit 40!), but we had been targeting 2008 as a year of doing some new and interesting things.
After the changes that came on unexpectedly in 2007 though, I’ve learned to roll with the punches. We’ll see if 2008 goes the way I envision it will as the year starts. I’m sure it won’t be exactly what I picture, but I also know there are some definite goals we have for this year that we’ll be working towards. As with any year, all I can do is work on improving myself, being a better husband, better friend, better worker, better writer, better photographer, and just all around better person. Regardless of how any of the other goals we have in mind turn out, if I can look back at the end of 2008 and see improvements in myself, as I do at the close of 2007, it will have been a successful year.
I hope you can do the same!
