Each day is a new day to have a good day. The same goes for New Year's Eve. It's the end of the year, and while in reality nothing changes - it affords us the opportunity to feel as if we have a new leash on life.
2007 was a really decent year in my life. There was very little change that wasn't for the positive. I am very fortunate to have had a very healthy, happy and properous year. Were there disappointments? Sure. There always is. Nothing is "perfect" in life. But overall there were no tragedies, and no real reasons for me to say "thank god this year is ending!". I'm actually sort of sad to see it end, truthfully. Life is cyclical I think, and I've had many years that I was looking forward to see changes come. I'd like to think I'm going to be able to hang onto this cycle of good things for a while longer.
I always say that I like to raise my glass and toast the year that's leaving me, as well as the one that's coming in. So my toast to 2007 & 2008 will go something like this:
"Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold. Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow."
Be safe this evening...drink responsibly -- don't drink and drive.
Happy New Year to you and yours. May this coming year bring you health, happiness, love and prosperity.
