I guess I haven't really been the one to say "Happy New Year" to too many people.
That never happens. No one ever has a year of complete happiness. So I will give you my honest alternative.
Have a chaotic new year, where you happen to find brief moments of peace that you can really appreciate. Have a trying, yet, rewarding new year. Indeed, have a happy new year, but only after you realize the importance of sadness. Grow up a little bit more this year. Count your blessings, they can be hard to recognize... A whole years worth of blessings in desguise should keep you on your toes.
My resolution this year.... is to take myself seriously.
My sentiment every Dec. 31st..."To the new year, may it suck a little less than the old one."
