Why is it that people put so much stock into the idea of a 'year'?
What does it mean? Its a block of time, a period which quickly comes and goes.
If everyone were to abandon the ever-lasting idea that a year has to be either overalll good or overall bad, mankind might be a little more positive.
I refuse do to the '08 reflection. Where am I right now? That's what fucking matters. That's the issue at hand. I can't change what happened, and I can't keep '09 from coming and throwing more unexpected or unwelcome situations my way. So why be so tenacious? I'm going to live '09 the same way I lived '08 and all the years previous-with an open heart and mind. Life is an experience full of learning, loving, losing, gaining, wanting, needing, but it doesn't need to be full of regrets.
Take it and run with it.
Life is not to be taken too seriously. When it all comes to the inevitable end, do you want to look back on a life of unfulfilled resolutions or would you rather reflect on a life lived the way it was intended?
