My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

I'm still in shock that's it's 2009...I remember giving birth in 2004 and thinking quickly to 2009 was when my baby would be going to kindergarten...CRY!

I'm glad that 2008 was a banner year for you. Lots of excitement in your life, that's for sure.

We had a pretty unremarkable year except for a significant struggle with a big flare up of axiety and depression my husband has been dealing with this year which took a big toll on all of us. Still, it seems to be winding down/under control now and I am profoundly grateful for that.

I'm also looking forward to great things in 2009.

Happy New Year and Hugs to you.

I enjoyed your list and yes, 2008 went flying by much to fast!

I started blogging in 2008, took a full time job after being a stay at home mom for 22 years,( well being home all those years and homeschooling was/still is a full time job, but now I get paid...LOL) celebrated 19 years of marriage and enjoyed the heck out of 2008!!

May 2009 bring joy, love, happiness, prosperity and peace to you....I look forward to our 2009 blogging journey...=D

Carin said...

It did go fast, I'm ready for the next year! Happy new year!

Jo said...

My gosh, you had a wonderful, eventful year. Lots of fabulous things happened to you!

I blinked and this year sped past. How did that happen?

I hope 2009 is just as fabulous for you as 2008 was.

Cheers!
