I always set too many expectations on this day. And sometimes my expectations meet. Sometimes they're not. Sometimes there's a surprise that I didn't expect. After a tumultous year I am ready to part with 2008. I guess I can say that in a good way though cause a lot of good things happened this year. So while I will part with the past 12 months, I have learned a lot and have grown as a person. I guess that's all you can expect to do in this life. As much as I may have expected certain things to happen that did not I take solace in what's to come. I want to celebrate the year to come, but don't want to forget how we all grew this past year. I'm always one to want to move forward. I know some of us get stuck or mired in muck sometimes, but move forward with your life. I guess moving forward means something different to everyone....but time moves forward with or without you, so keep your eye on the prize and the other on the clock. You can get the prize, but you can't get that time back.
