For auld lang syne.

Friday, January 1, 2010

It's hard to believe it's finally here- the end of 2009, the end of a decade. It seems like this year went faster than the rest, maybe it's because the events that encompassed this year seemed to be so much bigger than others, but it still doesn't change the fact that it's over. All the craziness, hopes, fears and excitement of 2009 are soon over, but I'm hopeful\ because it means I'm about to be greeted by the hopes of 2010. 2009 was a year filled with learning experiences, celebrations, and challenges, some greater than others, some more influential than others, and I think for me, it will be a year that changed a lot of things.

It was the year I lived up to all my own pressures and finally did it -  I graduated. I allowed myself to be vulnerable and see a glimpse of what love is supposed to look like. I gave into my fears and took the ultimate test of endurance. I watched my friends succeed in ways beyond words. I found my roots and I moved home. I became a mom and bought a dog. I struggled, I cried & I drank a lot of wine. I learned more about myself than I did in all four years of college. I figured myself out, and while, to my own dismay, I don't have the next chapter of my life planned out, I have hope. I've seen what I can do and what I'm capable of, and while I'm just sort of floating right now, I will land eventually. I will find my place. So while I might not be ready for the next step- I'm ready for the new year.

Through the good the bad and the ugly I made it, we all made it. So tonight as we pop the bubbly and ring in the new year, it's important to remember 2009, and understand and realize the hope and possibilities of 2010.

Bring it on 2010, we're all waiting.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
