Wow... When I wrote this in March of 2009,
"During this year, I both think and feel (logically and spiritually) I will be stretched more than I've been stretched in years. This one's gonna be a toughy. As for now, I feel anxiously optimistic. Yup.. That about hits it on the head."
I had no idea to what extent it would be true. 2009 was indeed a doozie. However, having said that, I'd most likely be struck by lightning if I didn't follow it up with example after example of how many blessings I've been given. Such examples being, "I still have a job", "I've been more active with music than I ever have been in my life", "I'm still in love with my wife", "I have 3 healthy, happy children", etc... etc... etc...
So, yeah... 2009 was a very interesting mix indeed.
So, with that said, how do I feel about 2010? Honestly? I have no idea. I've told my wife and some of my close friends that it would be very interesting to see where my life is in 2 years from now. Simply because right now, my life is more at a crossroads than it ever has been.
So, let the chips fall where they may, thus far I have two New Year's Resolutions:
- Finish reading and writing about the Book of Mormon. I started this goal 2 years ago, and have made it to Alma 46. I can finish it this year easily, if I just put my mind to it.
- Get deadly serious about music. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I can feel it in my soul that music is going to play a pretty big part of my near future. I'm already starting to learn how to play guitar.
That's about it, for now. I'm sure more will come, but .... I thought I'd let ya'll in for now.
