As 2009 comes to an end I reflect on the highs and lows of the year. It was one of great change, both personally and professionally. Personally, I learned to accept things much more for what they are while also accepting my strengths and limitations. Professionally, I learned that sometimes taking career detours do not always work out. In any case, I still hold on to my basic principle in life that everything happens for a reason. I may not know what the reason is at the time but I am certain that it will reveal itself eventually. Life is good, overall. As 2010 rolls in I am very fortunate to have a huge loving family, wonderful long-time friends, and membership in a very culturally diverse fraternity. I learned a great deal about myself this past year and will continue to grow, both personally and spiritually, in the coming year. Learning, about the world and yourself, is a life-long journey. Life in the end is really about the journey, so I intend to continue to live it to its fullest. I am truly grateful for everything I have and wish everyone a prosperous New Year. All the best.

Don't hold grudges. Let people be. Don't make stories up in your head. Things are not always what they seem. Accept people for who they are. Don't try to change them. Treat people well. Be generous of your soul. Do what you love. Acknowledge beauty. Seek wisdom. Enjoy peace. Listen to the silence. Be in the moment. Hear your heart. Speak your voice. See.
