So Long, 2008
I'd probably be safe in saying that 2008 wasn't the greatest year for most people. Many people lost jobs, 401ks tanked. Some people either couldn't sell their houses or couldn't get mortgages for new ones. The weather didn't even cooperate. Some areas had record snowfalls during the winter. In the summer, some places had flooding while others had record heat and drought. I could go on, but I'll stop there.
So, here's hoping 2009 is a better year for everyone.
I don't believe in resolutions--I set goals instead. For me, goals are more attainable. If I don't quite achieve the goal I've set, I can adjust accordingly. And I don't have to set all my goals on January 1st. It's an ongoing process. My immediate goal is to finish the book I'm working on now.
Does anyone else set goals? Or do you prefer resolutions? What are your goals? Tell us what you plan to accomplish in 2009.
Happy New Year, everyone!
