As we ALL know 2008 was one of the worst years in memory...or atleast in my memory!!! With 2009 finally here, I think we ALL should start this year with a positive attitude to help 2009 fulfill our wishes!!! I know that personally I plan on looking toward a brighter future & NOT even dare to look back to the bleak!!! None of us can do this alone; however, if we ALL join together to work toward this goal, I believe we can achieve it!!! Today is the FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF OUR LIVES!!! Let's take control to make it a brighter future!!! Can you tell me what you plan to do to leave the past in the past & look toward a more peaceful & happier future??? Come on people. If we ALL work together, WE CAN DO THIS!!!

I wonder why 2008 was so horrible for everyone. It's interesting to know that I am not the only one that is glad 2008 is over. The economy sucked, everything sucked and I am looking forward to beginning a new year and hope it is better for everyone.

I'm leaving self-doubt behind LadyM. I don't know that I will always be uber-confident, but I am going to believe in myself more. I have no doubt whatsoever that my friends here will remind me when I show signs of slipping!

Bravo LadyMarissa! I could not agree with you more on this one. Damn the analytical predictions of doom and gloom as 2009 will be what we make of it! Collectively we4 can make a difference if we believe and achieve. Happy 2009 to one and all and let's prove the naysayers wrong!

Well I am not going to sit back and just hope that this will be a better year. I know I have to do my part to make it so. Since I just managed to figure out what my problem has been I feel like I have a fighting chance to fix this problem. So I am with you on this one. Let's all plan for a brighter future.

Will be difficult to leave the past behind because it was something that left deep slashes. But for sure I will try. I really want to have a different 2009. My nephew got here in Fortaleza two days ago and he touched me deeply when he said I was his influence and he told everybody that asked him what was his influence to start with music that was with me listening to music with him when he was a boy. I am even thinking of studying music again. Who knows?

I am going to ignore all things that bother me, such as rude people or comments made by people, online and off. I will not let anyone make me question who I am or make me feel like a loser or low-life. I know who I am and where my heart stands. I wish you the best year ever!!!
