Happy New Year

Well its that time of year again....

I've never been a big New Year's person. All the New Years resolutions, finding that special someone on New Year's Eve, kissing them when the ball drops. Never, really been one of the places a lot of my energy has gone, for good or bad, that's how it is.

However, I often take this time of year to think about the past year and think about the future. I don't really believe in resolutions- I was never good at keeping them, and all it does is allow me to beat myself up for not keeping a "promise" I've made to myself- instead I'm currently subscribing to "everything in moderation"... a quote I've seen recently goes something like.. "failing is not in the falling down, but in not getting back up... "

Another quote that's been crossing my mind a lot over the past week as I've pondered the last year and the future, is one I first heard on TV show, and then one of my sorority sisters used it in her greeting during pledging... and it is my holiday wish for me, my family and for all of you... it goes something like this...

"May the worst day of the rest of your life be better than the best day of your life so far."
