HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Here's hoping everyone has a great (and safe) time tonight. I also hope 2009 is a wonderful year for everyone.
I plan on taking 2009 by the horns and making it my year. New years resolutions aren't really my thing, so I don't really consider my declaration a resolution, but my new frame of mind.
This new year I'll still try to say yes to new experiences, but on my terms. I'm also going to let less bother me. I'll say no when needed and worry less if that bothers anyone. Maybe that means being less of a pushover.
I will spend less, waste less and become thoughtful of how much I really need something. The past couple of months we have reined in our wasteful spending by living a credit card free life. Spending cash only does make you spend less, but the gained freedom from not owing creditors is an incredible feeling.
Anyway, have a great year and enjoy everyone and everything about it even the unpleasant lessons you may learn along the way.
