The End

I really didn’t know how to start this post, or end it for that matter with the exception of the usual tunes. The year 2009 has come to an end, and that's about it. I'm not the most New Year-y person, if the makes sense, and I'm not the best with resolutions, mostly because I think if you're going to change, quit planning for it and just go on ahead and do it. Anyhow, I hope you had a good one and that you have an even better year ahead of you. I hope that you enjoyed your ups and learned from your downs and know that if you learn from what brought on the bad times, more good times will come your way. That's what I think anyway.

Be good and be kind. These two seem like very simple things you tell a four year old, but believe you me, doing them on a daily basis feels good – especially if it's heartfelt - and you'll be happier than you are now.

Take care of your heart and health. Do that and you'll be grateful for them later on in life when you're surrounded by your life's true loves in good health. If it's your health that's in trouble, stay clear of strong meds and rest it out with a bowl of vegetable soup and aspirin. If it's your aching heart, remember that life's too short to burden your thoughts with yesteryear's bitter clouds. The only things that'll come out of that are frown lines and a few zits, depending on your age and genes.

Whatever you say or do, always know that life's too short and at the end of the day, throwing a fit over something might seem kind of stupid one or even ten years down the line. Lighten up, take it easy and try to make the most of your day with a light heart, mind and soul. Trust me, you'll feel a lot better.

    Happy new year my dear, dear Erzulie :** May this new year and decade be full of so much joy, peace and contentment for you, and may it bring unparalleled love and warmth as well as the blessing of new and wonderful beginnings for you :)

    I got lost for a minute in the gentle voice of your reflective and warm post. Life is very simple even when it's very complex, isn't it? It's all about love in the end. It really, always is.

    P.S. Tod Rundgren's moving song is on my personal list of the all-time most beautiful and loving ones ever :)
