It’s time to say goodbye to 2009 and hello to 2010. I hope all of my readers will have a blessed and profitable 2010.
For me, 2009 was a bit of a strange year. I dealt with a couple of health issues, including kidneys stones and some back pain. I never really got into a good “groove” in 2009. I can’t describe it, but for some reason, 2009 just felt like a throw-away year.
Financially, I worked hard and kept plugging along, but I never felt like I was really accomplishing anything. Perhaps it was the general financial malaise – but I just felt “out of sorts” all year.
I certainly don’t mean to give the wrong impression. I wasn’t depressed and I feel good about some of the progress I made in 2009, but, taken as a whole, the year just had a very weird, very odd, very strange feeling. (Am I the only one who felt like this? Perhaps…)
I can honestly say, the past month or so, I feel a renewed enthusiasm – for blogging, for weight loss, for financial management – all of it. I have had to shift my focus, away from some projects that were too time consuming and towards projects that I could fit into my schedule, and now that those difficult decisions have been made I feel much better.
2010 is shaping up to be a very interesting year. Hopefully (and one can never tell), the worst of the financial meltdown is behind us and the entire economy can move forward. I am preparing myself for a better year, and I’m approaching 2010 with a renewed interest in money management.
My plan is to return to daily posting, with an eye towards encouraging others who are getting out of debt and striving to live debt free. I also have some big changes, just right around the corner, that I can’t wait to share with my readers. Again, I hope that you have a blessed and profitable 2010. Rock on.
