I can't believe that a whole decade has gone by so fast and at least my only regret is that I didn't take more pictures. As many of you know I am a little camera shy on a personal level, but on a business level take as many as you want! But as the new year approaches and the old one is about to end in about 12 hours, I reflect on what I have learned this year, the good experiences and the experiences I learned from (I don't believe in bad experiences, but see that they are always learning experiences), and most of all the new traditions I will carry over to 2010.
One of my new traditions that I have learned to love is jogging. I have lost over 20 pounds this year and I plan to continue eating healthy and maintain the work out schedule I have already conditioned myself to do. Another new tradition is continue to be in control of my spending and my work schedule. Last and not least, I will continue to forgive people have not been nice to me in the past. Forgive their actions and forgive the way they have unjustly treated me. This doesn't mean they are welcome back in my life by all means, but more that I have stopped thinking about their cruelty and moved on from people who treat others like they are nothing. I may be a nice person, but I'm a nice person who won't let anyone control my actions, especially if it means hurting other people. : )
Anyways, I decided to do something fun, so I listed every year in the decade and listed my most memorable memories.
