Cheesy bye bye 2008, hello 2009

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in, a pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves and a realist doesn’t need to stay up because he knows that the old year will leave and the new year will start.

Almost everyone and their brother has a 2008 roundup of events post, a bye bye 2008 post, you suck 2008 post or a hello 2009 post. I keep thinking what was 2008 to me and then I realize right now my milestones are monthly and the month starts on the 20th in reference to my daughter’s birth date. It’s not that I think my life started when she was born or that it ended for that matter, it is just an easier milestone to follow. I am just counting baby milestones and encouraging, nourishing and teaching her new tricks. The outside world exists and matters and 2009 will start tonight whether I like it or not. I don’t make new year’s resolutions because I make them every night, I try to think of the day and think of what I could have done better and resolve to do more of it or less of the things I should not have done.  Some days I am just glad the day is over and that the next will be a fresh start.  Instead of resolutions I am sharing my wishes for 2009.

  • I wish 2009 will be a good year for everyone.  I wish everyone would think before they acted and choose to do the good thing.
  • I wish 2009 will be a right year for everyone.  I wish everyone would think before they acted and choose to do the right thing.
  • I wish 2009 will be a green year and that everyone will try to be more environmentally friendly because we don’t want to live in a polluted ugly world.
  • I wish 2009 will be a caring year.  That everyone will go the extra mile for the people they care for and will pick up the phone and call their loved ones and let them know they care.
  • I wish 2009 will be a conscientious year.  Listen to your conscience it might tell you what you need to do.
  • I wish 2009 will be a humane year.
  • I wish 2009 will be a beautiful year for everyone.  Make an effort to bring beauty into your lives.
  • I wish 2009 will be a forgiving year for everyone.  That it might forgive us for our mistakes in 2008 and that we forgive those who have wronged us.
  • I wish 2009 will be a patient year for everyone.  Patience for our shortcomings and those around us.
  • I wish 2009 will be a positive year for everyone.  Positivity is what helps us keep going.
  • I wish 2009 will be a hopeful year for everyone.  Hope for a better future.  Hope that you can change the world even if it will take one small step at a time.
  • I wish 2009 will be a year of change for everyone.  Change bad habits into better ones.
  • I wish 2009 will be a year of health for everyone.
  • I wish 2009 will be a productive year for everyone.  Work hard, play well and enjoy life.
  • I wish 2009 will be a year of growth for everyone.  Grow old gracefully,  grow emotionally, mentally and financially.  For those little ones may you grow taller and stronger each day.
  • I wish 2009 will be a educational year for everyone.  Learn from your mistakes and move on.  Take that language course or  a pottery class.  Learn a new word every day.
  • I wish 2009 will be a happy year for everyone.
