I know that when the new year approaches I think about all that I could have done differently, what I should have done, etc. I'm guessing you do the same...it is good to learn from experiences that we have gone through, take lessons from missed opportunities and such...however don't let yourself dwell in regret. Sure there are things this year that I would have liked to have turned out differently, but so many great things have happened in my life this year!
So I encourage you and myself to take this opportunity not to kick ourselves for what we didn't do or because something didn't turn out just right in any particular situation, but to envision 2009 as our best year yet...because it is! Remember your my best days are ahead of you me. You have great memories of the past but don't let any mis-steps 0f 2008 hinder the way you march into 2009... I hope we all have learned from our mis-steps and have grown in the process...
This is a quote that has kinda stuck with me throughout this year:
Time discovers truth and heals what reason cannot.
Dwelling is good for no one and it preoccupies our mind when we could be thinking of more productive things...So, no matter how much "reasoning" we try to put to a situation...sometimes only time can heal...I guess I may have written this more for myself, but I sure hope if you're reading this, you gain something from it!
May you and your family be blessed beyond comprehension this new year.
