It's Been a Good Year Gone Bad

So first post of 2010 is so long overdue!
I’ll keep this one short.

For me, 2010 began full of blind optimism and complete faith that this would be a great year. I mean this one is different right? The end of 2009 was not only the end of a year, but the end of a decade! So much to look forward to!

How has 2010 treated you so far? Good? Bad?

For me the best word is tough. It has been a tough 6 weeks (is that really all it has been?) so far and a lot has happened. Very little of it good. In short, my sister and Dad are not doing so well and as their only family I have the responsibility of looking out for them. With my gorgeous little sister this is not an issue.. with my less than gorgeous Father… it is a big problem. My amazing housemate has now moved out as well, and I miss him a lot more than I thought I would. Finally work has been kicking me in the ass big style.

Regardless of all of the above - I STILL feel optimistic. When I reach the end of 2010, I am sure I will have achieved something. This year is a year for achievement against the odds. Not just for me, but for my sister, for my now ex-housemate, and I guess, perhaps even my Dad! Who knows!

"Another fresh new year is here....
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest...
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree
And sing more joyful songs!

William Arthur Ward

Happy 2010 everyone. It’s a new decade… let’s make this one count!
