Another Year Over...

Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that it was 1999 going into 2000?  When the world was teetering on the brink of the unknown?  Worried that your electronics weren't going to work after midnight, while at the same time hoping that all your credit card debt & student loan debt was going to magically disappear in the chaos. 

Now here we are.  2010 is almost over and we are about to welcome in 2011.  In some ways every year is just like 1999/2000.  Still teetering on the brink of the unknown.  While we are certain that all of our electronics are going to work, and yes, that all our debt will still be there once the clock strikes midnight, a new year still holds countless possibilities and unknowns.

While I usually find New Year's Eve to be a bit depressing because I think of the things that didn't happen over the year...the vacation that didn't materialize, the love I didn't find, the lottery I didn't win, etc., I find that on New Year's Day I am always hopeful for the potential that the new year possesses.

May your 2011 be Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, Peaceful, full of Love & Friendship, and so many other things that I couldn't possible type them all here.  Happy New Year Blog Readers!

Happy New Year to you, too! I feel the same way--seems like just a couple of years ago we were ringing in 2000! Can't believe it's about to be 2011!!
