I`m sipping on my first tea in 2006, made it darn it and optomistic that it was worth getting up for.
I have just set 5 goals for this year and to fail at any given one means certain death before the years end.
#5/ Reason(s) for living. It highly impacts the previous.
A survial expert (worked search/rescue in far Canadian north) once told me that the most important thing you can put in your survival kit is a note from a loved one (which includes yourself). Most interviewed after surviving great adversity was directly due to will to return to what they know they have.
Take stock of what is important to you and happy New year all!
