” An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. ” ~ Bill VaughnN

As you can tell my thoughts have turned to my annual audit.  I look back over the recent year, mentally gauge how far I have come and see what has changed within and without me and I begin to look ahead.

It doesn’t matter if I am a pessimist or an optimist.  It does matter that I put away the old and what is past, and look forward.  My resolutions and goals and indeed my yearnings have changed dramatically. Especially over the past two years.  I have a sense of rightness and peace within myself that I have never known the like of. And I am grateful.  I know what matters ( soul deep) to me, and who matters.  I value every moment and the small things.

There is no drive in me to go out and seek completeness in someone else’s eyes.  I am content within my own skin.  And content to continue to grow into the best me I am able to be.  That does not mean I do not have goals.  I do.  Every day I will tenaciously do something towards those goals.  This year, for once, those goals include me.
