My last post of 2010 - it doesn't seem possible that the year is about to finish - I am not ready for 2011 yet!

2010 has been an amazing year, filled with success, troubles, problems, solutions and success, success, success!

I returned to university again this year and loved every moment of my studies. Although I only completed 3 courses this year, it finished off a full first year of my 3-year degree. I am still as passionate, if not more, about studying. I love the interaction, knowledge and satisfaction of being a student.

My family survived 2010 - we had our ups and downs - both Elizabeth and Sarah had tough years, but as we finish the year - I look at them both and know that they are beautiful, happy girls. They are stronger for their trials and with our love and support continue to grow and thrive. Our Matthew had a good year, rather more laid-back that 2009, but one in which he really began his journey into manhood - those broad shoulders, long legs and deep voice - tell the story.

Ivan did less travelling this year, although November & December were crazy - with 3 overseas trips. After 22 years together I can say that I love him more than ever - he has my soul and my heart - and I have his.

Writing has been my passion this year - I have written blogs, essays, poetry and finally my second novel. I managed to self-publish my book of poetry "An Angel's Anthology" and I am very proud of it.  My second novel has turned out so much better than I hoped and I have begun work on the third installment. I also found a new spiritual peace - I attended the "I can Do It" conference in Sydney with my lovely friend Michelle and it blew me away - I gained confidence in expressing my Spirituality in new ways.

At the end of 2010 I am healthy, a little too fat, but happy. I feel content and peaceful as an 'almost' 47 year old and am looking forward to the year ahead.

Tomorrow I will post my dreams and wishes for 2011, but for now I wish you all a safe New Year's Eve.

Beverly you are an amazing lady and have done so much this year. I don't know why you say "only" 3 courses, this is huge, it's 3 more courses then you started the year out with, it's 3 courses closer to that degree and you're doing fantastic in my opinion!

I am so happy that we've connected here, I consider you a dear friend and as odd as this is we've never met face to face but there's a connection.

I wish you all the best in the New Year, and at our age, what's a few extra pounds? lol

Darlene, thank you.
I am also so happy that through this amazing medium, I met you. One day we will meet in either Canada or Australia. You have been my inspiration as well.
Thank you for a great friendship in 2010.
