2008. Hmmmm. A new year ahead for all of us. But what does it mean to me? Me, being me - optimistic, I think I would want to believe that this year will be another great year ahead.
Of tears shed. Of funny moments. Of painful and heartbreaking experiences. Of heart warming memories.

We look forward to each tomorrow that this year will bring.

Try to find meaning and purpose even in just the littlest things. Cry -- crying is good. Find joy in what you do. Hurt if you must. But learn to forgive. For we age because of the bitterness kept inside the heart. Know that in everything, there is a purpose. We have a big God and our problems can never be to big for us if we trust in our God.

Life would not be life if it were all pain. Life would not be called life if it were all joy. Life would not exist if it were perfect. Life exists because we live to find perfection in the pain, in the joy, in the hurt, in the laughter even if we know it will never be and that is what makes it so beautiful.
Feel each day. Be aware of what is happening. Know which things must be given importance. Take a minute or two each day to spend with yourself. Think. Ponder. Realize. Learn. Feel. Know. Be.

Never forget that we have choices. That we are never NOT given a choice.

Know and believe that tomorrow can always be better than today if we have faith.

Here's to 2008.
