Looking Forward

2009 is finally here. We look forward to what this year will bring us at the same time we arm ourselves with the many life lessons learned from the year that was 2008.

Yes, we may still have hang-ups or emotional baggage but this year, we tell ourselves that we will do everything better than last year.

What are you looking forward to in 2009?

My answer:

There is so much to look forward to in 2009 for us. For one, my eldest daughter will be graduating grade 7. We decided to have her enroll in Grade 7 even if she passed HS because she is going to miss leadership opportunities and a special day, her graduation day.

My brother is also going through a new phase in his life during the middle of the year and even if I am apprehensive about it, I hope my prayers will be enough to keep me strong.

If financial analysts are right, 2009 will bring in a lot more financial crisis than last year. It is said that this year people wold feel the blunt of the crisis that hit major financial institutions and that include among others, the OFW who will be coming back due to job losses.

For my part as a mother, I have resolved to be more vigilant to things pertaining expenses. I have also some things I need to improve on as a wife and as a mother and I am trying to do so, one step at a time, perhaps on a day to day basis.

I also plan to focus on myself more this year, resolve to be healthier and improve what I think needs to be worked on.

No, I don’t have New Year’s resolutions, written down on paper or mentally stored. I would love to do so but I feel I would be disappointed in myself if I fail to accomplish what I plan to accomplish.

What about you? What do you look forward in 2009?

  6. So true Miss J…I really don’t want to get disappointed when I fail to fulfill my resolutions (if I don’t forget them in the middle of the year, that is).

    World Wide economy is getting pretty bad these days but even though they predict that it will be worse, I am still crossing my fingers that things will go 180 degrees.
