Here’s To You And The Road Ahead

Wow! Can you believe it? It’s December 31 already and as I take a quick peek over my shoulder at what’s gone down in the last year an avalanche of adjectives crashes into my head! It’s been an incredibly amazingly and awesome year. In fact, there ain’t enough words in the world to describe what a year it has been. Well, that might be a slight overstatement… But I’m sure even Tom Peters would have difficulty finding enough adjectives, font types or exclamation marks to express it!

I have had so many amazing opportunities this year. Sure, it didn’t come without tough choices, one of which was to leave my friends and colleagues at Herbies. But once made, these same choices let me go on to learn and gain so much in the days following. At each turn I could never be sure of what lay ahead, or how the next challenge will be met, but some how you just push yourself through.

And I found that the challenges never stop coming, but then that’s what life is about. No more challenges means no success, and when the challenges stop, life stops. Sure some days life really surprises you with what it will throw at you, but on just as many days you surprise yourself with what you can do.Here's To You!

Of course, this journey couldn’t have been possible (and certainly a whole lot less fun) without my family – including the new additions to the Wong family – and all my friends, new and old.

So to each of you out there, near and far, I say ‘Thank You’ for being a part of my life and I wish you all the best for the new year!

So 2012, bring it on already!
