It's a new year! We left 08 and started 09. No one knows where this year will take any us, but hopefully it can only get better from here! Some of us made big changes in 08 and some were forced to make big changes due to the economic turmoil. I truly feel for all the people who have lost their jobs! Those have not been pleasant changes!

Personally, I am 'absorbing' my new place and adjusting to it all. Some people hold onto what doesn't work or stay in something because they're too afraid to make 'move'. I am not one of those people. 

Life is all about change and how we adjust to it. We can either take it on with a positive attitude or we can wallow around in self pity and handle it with a negative attitude. We always have a choice! What is your choice going to be?

Here's to you and to a New Year with lots of positive changes! Cheers! 


  1. Welcome, Nina...

    I hope your experience here is a good one. I've created two blogs here, but have cut back a little on updating them. Hopefully I'll have a little more time in the very new future, after I've settled some life issues I'm working on.

    Yes, I agree with your estimation of the value of change in our lives. Let's hope each of us sees where change is needed , then to work toward it!

    I look forward to learnng more about the new direction your life has taken.

  2. I'm very proud of you love! Very proud!!!!
