…than what?

if you mean better than last year… it should be! The first half of the year i spent getting my soul and spirit back to find that the world looked colourful and beautiful to me again… only to spend the latter six months in a relationship that has destroyed (not completely but…) some of my positivity and enthusiasm.

i intend to rectify this and not make the same mistake again…i.e. when you sense that something might be a bad idea…it generally is. listen closely to your heart and don’t ignore it.

I will be surprised if I screw this year up as badly as the last one. Not overwhelmingly so, but I learned a few things to avoid.

I am cautiously optimistic.

If things don’t go better than last year, I’m in trouble.

That being said, I only need one tangible improvement to turn me back into an optimist.
I’m kind of a hope whore.

@cprevite I’m curious as to why is was such a bad year? Of course you don’t have to disclose anything at all…but also curious to know what would be an example of a tangible improvement?

@lynneblundell: wife unemployed, savings gone, dad died, aunt died, uncle died, friend died, many friends divorced or unemployed, and I’m working seven days a week just to keep my head above water.

If my wife could land a job, I’d do a cartwheel (and if you saw me, you’d know that’s quite a feat).

I’m depending on it. But I know there is much hard work to be done and many hard choices to make.

@cprevite! crikey…that’s awful… i sincerely hope you have a much much much better year! and praying and hoping that your wife lands a job before the end of January but sooner if possible! x

I expect to make my own life better this year, as opposed to last year, when I think I subconsciously expected someone to come along and make my life better for me.

@cprevite: Aw, gee whiz, that’s rough. This too will honestly pass. Bless you and your family.
