We now return you to your previously scheduled blog, already in progress

2010 begins. 2009 was a memorable year. So many ups and down, including the Christmas Day passing of my mother.

I have come to the conclusion that all the ups and downs of the past few years were for a reason. I would not change or do without even the worst of them, because they have made me far stronger and more confident than I could have envisioned otherwise. So many new doors have opened to me, and I'm excited about what lies ahead!

Goals/resolutions for 2010? My usual: NONE! However, that doesn't mean I don't have a vision of what 2010 will hold. I will finish my master's work in March and graduate in May. I will continue going to karate, and earn my purple and red belts this year. I will open my heart even further, and invite in new friends, new experiences, and new learnings. I will love openly, give freely, and rejoice daily. And 2010 will be my best year yet!
