Sure, 2009 had its ups and downs. I said goodbye to treasured friendships and made a hurtful mistake I hugely regret.
But by in large, it was a wonderful year and I am grateful for quite a bit. New friendships and wonderful memories with treasured ones. Distant adventures that I won't forget any time soon. Hard work that pushed my boundaries as a professional and volunteer.
I am lucky I can claim this life as my own.
As for 2010 - I am pushing myself to seek more restraint and discipline. I know these qualities will help me as I pursue two new endeavors - the goal of looking good naked and hopes of a new residence in Over-the-Rhine in the coming months.
This year promises to dish up untold adventure. For now, San Francisco is on the calendar in less than two weeks - and I imagine more far flung fun is expected in the days and months ahead.
I am grateful I am traveling a road paved with opportunity, and I can't wait to share the story with you.
