Choo-choo! Chooooo-choooooooo!!!!

Why is it that babies and toddlers draw such attention? What is it about them that us grown ups can't get enough of?

These little folks are not often riders of the subway, but when they are, they seems to be the centre of attention. Their silly little nattering on and wiggling around put smiles on the faces of dopey commuters. I, myself, find that suddenly I have arrived at my stop and almost missed it, because I'm so mesmerized by the sweet innocence of these little ones.

It's nice. I like seeing them on the subway even more than I like to see the mice running around the tracks in the station.

2008 is bound to be great! (that rhymes so it must be true)

A brand new year. And just like every brand new year before, it's a chance to make a change.

Welllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll......I feel I made lots of changes in 2007 to last me a while, but perhaps I'll aim for a few more. While I need to continue to grab life by the reigns, I must also be confident in what I am doing. I need to step outside of my comfort zone and grow.

I will take this in steps. Now, I am a visual person. So let me lay it out here for myself. I should live life like this:

Step 1) Jump at opportunities and don't be afraid.

Step 2) Accept a bit of help from friends if I just can quite get there myself.

Step 3) Get situated well -- though it may feel weird, perhaps its right.

Step 4) Sit back and enjoy the ride!

So if everything goes according to plan, life will be just like riding a horse. Soooooo natural.
