I'm excited about 2009

December 28th, 2008 at 10:55 pm

I know it may sound crazy, but I really am excited about 2009. I'm healthy, will be starting a new job, I'm still coaching clients, and I feel like I have a balanced life.

I am refusing to participate in the gloom and doom the media loves to program into us. I see many possibilities for great financial gains and accomplishments in 2009. When the average person is allowing anxiety, worry, and fear to consume their daily thoughts and actions, I choose faith and hope.

Of course faith, hope, and preparation is a major key to weathering this economic storm. I believe since we've been so frugal and have stored away in our time of harvest, we are prepared during this time of famine.

All in all, I'm excited about 2009 and I am looking forward to what the future holds.

What about you, are you excited about 2009 or not?

    I like your enthusiasm. I wish i could be equally upbeat, but i think 09's going to be a tough year financially for most people. I'll be ok as long as i keep my job.

    Thanks for the breath of fresh air !!

    Your first point is crucial - "I'm healthy, ...".

    I am not immune from the doom and gloom merchants. Yes, the world economy is in a constricting manovere. Will that fact alone change my life ? Not really.

    Whenever I see the long faces on TV talking about lower growth etc... I think about:

    Innocent Iraqi men, women and children and what they have gone through.
    Homeless drug addicts in all countries.
    The starving in Africa.
    Subsistence farmers who break their backs just, hopefully, putting food on the table who don't have the luxury of a warm bath like I do.

    I say to myself: "Cop on you fool !!".
