Two thousand eight brought several challenges to our family (mostly geographic), and like many, we too have come to a vivid realization - living with less, wanting less, "needing" less is actually a rather liberating experience. Somehow, craving the newest this, or the nicest that is no longer something to which I can relate.** It doesn't make me enlightened or superior, just re-prioritized.
I certainly have goals to accomplish in this fresh year, but overall, my hope is to continue a journey of living openly. If I can do that with an ounce of grace and generosity of spirit I will feel "resolved" long beyond 2009.
