What A Year

Wow, 2008 will be over in just a few hours, and tomorrow will start the last decade of the 2000s. It has been a crazy year (for me anyway). Let's see, I'm trying to figure out what happened this year.

I got demoted at work to a stock clerk. A couple of months later I got my job back working the customer service lobby. That was fun.

I started my tenth year at my church on a down note, then it started getting better,. Around the summer I started getting upset at church again and was trying to figure out why I was there. Then I decided that I was fed up with church (even the youth ministry, which had become my biggest passion in life) and wanted to leave. Then at the end of July, I came to terms with myself, and started talking to different people, and decided to stick around.

I then started to focus on something else I liked doing, which is making videos and slideshows for the church. Starting tomorrow, I will become the leader of the Media Ministry.

In September, I celebrated my 28th birthday. My uncle surprised me with a car. This meant that I had to get over my fear of driving. In October, I visited my other uncle in Utah. I did a lot of driving over there, which helped me get over my fear of driving.

I got an offer to move out there next year, which I am strongly considering. I don't have to pay rent. It is just beautiful out there. It won't be until the end of 2009.

I don't want to make this a long blog, so I won't make it any longer.
Happy New Year, everybody!

If the move to Utah makes sense to you go for it. That would seem like a pretty exciting change to me.

Happy new year Chris. Doesn't look like we're going to get that holiday shake in today, but sometime we'll go and get a regular old "rest of the year" shake.

From someone who moved away, I say go for it! Then again I couldn't wait to leave California. We drove through Utah to get here and I remember it being really pretty towards to east end of the state. Plus no rent? I think it would be a good change for you too. I can't wait to find out what you decide.

If you want to learn how to eliminate your fear in driving try to read this special report about the “10 Keys To Eliminating Fear of Driving”.

I have discovered that this special report can really help you in eliminating fear or any fear in driving. I had the chance to talk to the author Alex Hunter and he was very approachable when it comes to getting advice about the subject.
