Looking back at a post from two years ago, I find myself returning to the same frame of mind and the same kind of thinking. Alright, that was redundant, but so is this post that I just referred to. In it, I resolved to shut up more, give things my all, and to not make any resolutions. Looking back, I'd have to say one out of three ain't bad, eh?
And what do I promise to do in 2009? Well, no resolutions and all that, but I need to get my life back on track. There were lots of things that I thought I had going for me early on in 2008, but then I ended up forcing a change that I thought was best for all concerned, and my life swan-dived into nothingness. Rather gracefully too, if I must say so myself.
Now, attempting to pick up the pieces so that I can salvage whatever is left from this descent into personal and professional oblivion, I'm on the must-make-things-happen path to recovery. But even that's never proved to be anywhere near enough. So, I'm just going to have to keep it simple, and use small words when I write down my goals, just so I don't confuse myself.
Having said that, I can't help but think that I've been living my life in circles. In fact, the last four years of my life have been round-and-round-the-merry-go-round. A sad case of everything ventured, nothing gained. Ouch! Well, here's to doing something about the sorry state of existence that I call "my life," in 2009.
Wait. Did I just make a resolution? Dammit! Well, like I said, nothing's changed in the last almost-half decade. Let's hope I can salvage some pride and courage in the next couple of days and make it an unforgettable two-oh-oh-nine.
