So... here it is... the auspicious beginnings of 2009. Morning has broken, like a new dawning... All with the promise of a new day... and all that holds.
It doesn't look much different than 2008, thus far. Still some snow on the ground, a bit overcast, and about 22° (this time ABOVE zero, thankfully). I haven't, yet, broken any of my resolutions... this is good, with the new year only 11 hours old. And yet, it could be a wonderful year.
The puppy is asleep at my feet, the wife is still asleep upstairs, and I am somewhat "brain dead" this a.m. No, not due to over-drinking... just tired... We didn't party-hearty... we simply went to dinner at a local restaurant (Jacky's, for those of you nearby)...who had a price-fixe menu for the evening.. (lovely)... and then retired to one of the couple's homes, and played a very poor version of Charades (haven't played that in years)...
It was the men against the women... and the Judge (me) ruled that the men won the evening. The ladies (really, the judges) determined that the Judge was wrong... and the women prevailed. Ahh, such is life.
2009, thus far, has started out with more of a whimper, than a bang, and I'm looking forward to learning the nature of this new year. Will it be kind and gentle, or will it push me around some more, like it's predecessor?
Let's be optimistic... 2009 will be gangbusters, and better than I could possibly imagine, both personally, and business-wise. I will reach and exceed all my goals... because
I'm good enough...
I'm smart enough...
And gosh-darn it, people like me. :-)
It's a blank slate, a blank sheet of paper... make sure to write on it what you want to... and don't hesitate to reach for the eraser, when needed.
Stay tuned... news at Ten (Eleven east coast)
