To be honest I wasn't really keen on doing this this year, but I'm a sucker for tradition and this is year four.
HIGH POINT OF THE YEAR?
I'm not sure I can pin a specific moment. Not in a debbie downer way, but I'm not sure. I took a couple of personal days to just go out and spend time outdoors, which was wonderful and provided me a lot of clarity and re-centering.
LOW POINT OF THE YEAR?
My church firing the preacher I loved and the ensuing (and ongoing) consequences.
LESSON LEARNED THIS YEAR?
Perseverance is hard.
SONG FOR 2009?
"Still" by Zoe Group has meant a lot to me.
BEST MOVIE OF 2009?
I don't know. Um... Benjamin Button or Up. I'm not sure if Benjamin Button came out this year, but I saw it this year.
BEST BOOK OF 2009?
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller really impacted me.
BEST TV SHOW OF 2009?
30 Rock is hilarious to me. I'm compare myself to Liz Lemon too often. I also finally caught up on Lost, which was fantastic.
There were times I should have kept my mouth shut.
BEST DECISION MADE THIS YEAR?
Several times I had to purposefully decide to do nothing and wait. I'm terrible at that, but it was the best decision.
BIGGEST CHANGE OF THE YEAR?
Church has changed a lot. Work has changed a lot.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR?
Keep on keeping on.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR NEXT YEAR?
To do better. To balance work and relaxation. To abide.
