2010 is coming to a close, for some of you out there it will be a blessing that an awful year is over and the promise of better to come is just around the corner. For others it will be a year that’s been so great that you don’t want it to end.
For most of the rest of us though it will be more of the same, SSDD, same shit, different day.
Having said that, I look forward to the coming year with optimism, as I do every year, in the hope that this next year will be different, will be filled with some good fortune instead of the usual disappointment and what I’v come to realise is this. Although there are down sides in every year there are the good points too. I know this coming year will be basically more of the same but I choose to focus more on what can be done rather than what can’t.
2011 will see the birth of my second grandchild from my wonderful daughter who I know will be a great mum, my wonderful son has already fathered a fantastic little man, my first grandchild who will be four years old. These are positives that I’ll take with me into the new year. My wonderful girlfriend will be standing by me through the coming events and sharing them along with giving me support, inspiration and confidence to pursue my writing career which I hope will see some success too.
All in all I look forward to 2011 with optimism, hope and a sense of wonder and I wish everyone the same for their coming year too.
See you soon,
