a shiny bright new year

Welcome to a fresh year, a new decade.  I read in the paper today that

people were having a hard time defining the last decade, and in a contest

only came up with depressing names.

Yes, we can choose to reflect back on the last 10 years as full of pain and

misery, or we can choose to remember the bright spots, and learn from

what has occured.

I am a glass-is-half-full kind of gal (most of the time).  Often we cannot

control our situation, what we can control is how we choose to handle

what happens to us.  And some days it is easier to think that way than

others, but I hereby resolve to face this year with calmness in the face

of stress, and to try to radiate light on a dark day.

I have picked my quote of the year, perhaps I should embroider it on

a pillow or calligraphy it and frame it to hang in my office:

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not

sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." 

(Anne Bradstreet)

For the new year, I wish you the best life has to offer, and a full

glass of cheer!
