  5. Gratitude

    In order to solidify my long overdue new year's resolutions, which include personal and professional goals I first need to acknowledge my gratitude for all of the amazing support people have given to me over the past year, 2008.

    In many ways it has been the best year of my life--not at all easy, but exciting, rewarding and a little miraculous. The highs and lows were quite drastic and thankfully, there were many more highs than lows. I wore many different hats as I prepared to launch ...
