2009..Carpe Diem..Your Year to.......

It's the first day of a New Year! What an exciting, somewhat bittersweet day! Looking back, we realize that 2008 was gone in a blur and that it was another year of learning. Now is the time to complete our looking back over that year celebrating our successes, lamenting our losses, and learning from the previous 365 days of lessons. Now, we can say "2009 is Your Year To Shine."

What are your New Year's Resolutions? What are you going to do to help you, your family, or your health? Are you setting resolutions? If you were to set a resolution, what would it be? What would you like to see happen in 2009?! At the very least, set a course for compassion, generosity, and improvement.

I'd like to share a poem I came upon. Unfortunately, the author is unknown.

How Beautiful the Turning of the Year

How beautiful the turning of the year!
A moment artificial yet profound:
Point upon an arbitrary chart
Passing like a breath upon the heart,
Yearning with anticipation wound,
New hope new harbored in old-fashioned cheer.
Even when the boundary line is clear,
We recognize the oneness of the ground.
Years, like circles, do not end or start
Except we lay across their truth our art,
Adjusting dates as they go round and round
Revolving to a tune long sung and dear.

Here's to hoping your "Turning of the Year" is full of joy and hope. And here's hoping that 2009 is Your Year to Shine!!
