L'Shanah Tovah Tikateivu 5771

Seriously? Again? Here we are? Where was I the last year? Oh, that's right, run over, swept down, sucked under by Change.

At least through it all there was TAO, the puppies, and string. As well, there were friends. I made some awesome new friends last year, met really good people.

The friends changed the balance. There were more good experiences with people than with ninnies and nincompoops. Which is not to say that there weren't a few experiences with those. But you know what? I don't want bad things for those people. I actually want them to be happy, mostly so they'll stop being miserable, and making the rest of us miserable. Or...if they're not ready for happiness (sometimes we aren't) could they at least go play quietly in the corner and leave the rest of us alone?

Now, was this shift brought on by the universe or by my conscious decision to seek out more positive, or by my own growth/learning to keep my mouth shut? Who can say? Probably some alchemical combination of the three.

As for those situations where I did not act with kindness, compassion or grace. Please, forgive me. It truthfully was not personal. It may have felt personal, looked personal, and sounded personal, but it wasn't. And if I hurt you, I apologize. I can be a vicious and vindictive 5 year old sometimes.

Michelle from work here! I sent your message home, too busy to do it at work.
Anyway, so glad I got to know you, you are a gem. You teach me new words and make me smarter (ie, Milabrigo)LOL. Now, tomorrow call me or email me at work and let me learn a new word/phrase and tell me what L' Shanah Tovah Tikateivu means, ok?
