Hello, faithful readers! It's New Year's Eve, I'm securely ensconced in my house while yet another storm dumps multiple inches of snow outside, and I've just finished watching my second bowl game of the night. Life could be worse.

But being the emotional, melancholy, wistful girl that I am, New Year's Eve always gets me thinking. I try to learn something with each passing year...try to make sense of the crazy circumstances we all share called life. I said that I try...I don't always succeed. It's been a hell of a year for me personally, and quite frankly not one that I'm inclined to repeat. I can liken it to being a professional athlete having a bad year. I've got so many blessings that I feel guilty complaining about my challenges. But I'm human, and it's hard to remember those blessings when I've missed the playoffs of life-and missed them badly. Personally, I should take a lesson from my sports fandom. What's done is done...2007 is gone and I can't get it back. What I can do is refocus my energy, work hard, and expect to make the cut in 2008. It's that confidence, that drive, which will be a major factor in my success or failure in this upcoming year.

So adios, 2007. I'd be lying if I said that I'll miss you. But I will try to take the lessons that I've learned from my failures (and my successes) with me into 2008.

Here's to you, my internet friends. I hope that while you read this, you are snuggled up somewhere, warm and happy. Try to remember your blessings even in during your most challenging times. Try to remember that sometimes the most valuable lessons are disguised in the misery of failure.

Happy New Year to us all.
