I love the end of the year for all of the montages that are put together to reflect in the previous year. I could watch these things endlessly.
They always make me laugh and cry while remembering big news stories, tragedies, triumphs, and many things that I had tucked away and forgotten about. This crazy world we live in is always spinning and there is always something to catch.
Not only is it the end of the year, but also the end of the decade...TWO types of montages for me!!!
Many people are saying this is the worst decade and it makes me sad to think that the decade that both of my children were born is dubbed the WORST. There were many tragedies, but also many AWESOME and wonderful things that happened.
In my life over the past decade, I became a real-life grownup: had a career, married, moved MANY times across this country and slightly abroad, and birthed two beautiful, healthy, and happy children. I would say that this has been my best decade. There are also many funny and embarassing things that happened as well as a some hurdles and sadness.
To quote the wise Forrest Gump, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get."
While looking forward to the future, we all should take a look back and do our own Year in Review and Decade in Review...what would yours include?
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve surrounded by loved ones. I look forward to all that 2010 and this new decade has in store!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
