Happy New Year everybody! Everyone I talk to seems to be optimistic about 2010. We all feel like this is the year things will get better.
As I mentioned in a previous blog, I lost two jobs in 2009, but the fact that I'm starting off 2010 employed is a great feeling!
My New Year's resolution is to be more patient in the new year. There's no doubt about it, living in a city tests your nerves. People are always in the way. There is always someone who is going to drive or walk slower than you. But is it really worth it to get bent out of shape? To the cab driver who lays on the horn for a solid minute when someone cuts you off: Do you really feel better afterwards? Maybe that person simply didn't see you, and isn't trying to be obnoxious.
Today at the grocery store, there was a line about 5 people deep to pick up meat products. The old Jeannie would have turned to Mike and said just loud enough, "This is the worst!"
The new Jeannie just waited patiently, because who says my meat-buying is any more important than anyone else's?
So let's all try and be more patient in 2010! Trust me, you'll feel a lot better.
