Legs curled under my body, I leaned on K as the year came to an end and the millions on TV shivered in the cold watching an electronic apple descend marking the count down to the next decade. It also wrapped up two unbelievably hectic, dark days in my life.

As the new day dawned, I did not feel the ‘happy’ new year spirit. I set about the day in a daze wondering what the hoopla about the new decade was. But as the sun set, it sunk on me. A resolve to start the new year on a positive note.

So, as I go about the many odd everyday tasks I tell myself that the past does not matter. The future does not too. I cannot control the rest of my world. I can control how I choose to react though. I can tell myself to be open to the wonder of everyday moments. I can choose to be happy, have the right attitude and be resilient.

So, if 2009 ended on less than a stellar note for you like it did for me, I’d like to say just one thing.

Tomorrow is another day. The sun will shine and all will be well in your world.
