This morning I heard an interesting blurb on the radio regarding the year 2007 being a 9 signifying the end according to numerology and 2008 being a 1 signifying a beginning in numerology. The radio voice went on to say that some people were anxious about the transition from 2007 to 2008 because they feared change and were uncertain of what would replace activities which “ended” in 2007.

It caught my attention because my 2007 was filled with change, but I did not really let go of anything. I still participated in the same activities and hobbies that I always have. Further I continue to maintain the same small circle of friends and have not branched out towards any new beginnings.

I have to admit I do have some time on my hands and am attempting this year to further reduce my time spent participating in casino gaming. I have wondered what I will do to fill the time. I am assuming something will come up. That led me to start asking what do I really want in life and am I willing to take steps to get there. Unfortunately this was slightly demoralizing as I struggled to espouse a single personal long term goal. Instead I was forced to ask whether I am content staying the course both professionally and personally?

Even if this question is answered in the affirmative, how long can one maintain a status quo? While something will always come up, isn’t it better to lead than to follow? While I will not attempt to close this topic in this post, I will attempt to understand myself better and establish some long term goals.
