2010 - done deal

I'm really glad 2010 is about to be deep six'd. 

In a number of ways this year has been one of the most trying in my adult life.  Another in a string of depressing and stressful years where I watched people lose their health, their livelihood, their motivation, or worse.

Personally I've got a lot to be thankful for.  My head is still above water, although I've had my nervous stretches.  There's a roof over my family's heads, a (relatively) secure job, (relatively) good health, and fewer sleepless nights.  It's not great, but it's more than what could have been.

Thank you to everyone who's connected with me, publicly or privately.  Thanks also to those of you who come at me with encouragement or tell me I'm full of sh!t (We're cool, homie. Seriously).  This thing started out just as a way for me to distract myself from the daily mental beat down that was stressing me.  As cheesy as this may sound, I really think it's helped my head - even if much of the stuff I posted was trivial crap.

For all you (mostly) younger cats who are fully in your I'm-gonna-conquer-the-world stage in life - PLEASE keep going!  I love to read and hear your optimism and motivation.  I personally am in the middle of a lifestyle re-prioritization, and am no longer interested in sacrificing my personal life and family for a career I'm not sure I wanted in the first place.  Reading and watching all you guys has reminded me to go dust off all those dreams I was forced to put on the shelf years ago. 

2011 is the new sexy.  2010 you turned out to be one of the worst strobelight honeys I've ever met.  Don't let the door hit you on the a** on the way out.

Thanks for reading.
