Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

Well, 2008 is over, and not without a tinge of sadness on my part, because it truly has been one of the best years of my life.
This was the year I admitted to myself that I was kinky, and that I needed to do something about that. This was the year I discovered a whole new world out there in terms of the spanking blogging community, the year I became part of that community myself, the year I got spanked for the first (and many more!) times, the year I outed myself to several of my vanilla friends, and the year I met, through the blogging world, some amazing new friends, both online and in real life.
If I try to remember back to what life was like at the beginning of 2008, before I started on this journey of mine, I have trouble. My kink has become such an integral part of who I am in such a short time, informing my choices on where I spend my online time, what I read, who I socialise with, what I think about, that it's hard to remember what life used to be like before all that. More boring, definitely!
But I won't be sad about leaving 2008 behind, even though it was such a wonderful and pivotal year for me. 2009 holds even more possibilities for fun, frolics and new friendships, for exploring my kink further, and for, if I have anything to do with it, a whole load more spankings!
So Happy New Year to everyone out there, I hope 2009 brings you everything you wished for, and most importantly, of course, many, many sore bottoms!

Have you cleaned up the mess yet?

Happy New Year lovely!
Hope to catch up later ;-)

Sounds a lot like my 2008, Eliane! Well, except that it first took me much of 2007 to admit to myself I was kinky and decide to do something about it.

I hope you find 2009 to be even more fulfilling.

I for one am so glad that you decided to get in touch with your kinky side in the past year. I hope 2009 proves just as wonderful for you as the past twelve months have done.

I echo the comments of Abel - congratulatons on discovering yourself in 2008: may 2009 bring you ever new horizons, and many new friends.

You "outed" yourself to some vanilla friends: if they are true friends they will understand - and remain friends. If not, it is their loss! Be yourself and live each day to the full.

Olivia, the cleaning up is ahem, almost done ;-)
Indy, it's taken me most of my life to admit to myself that I'm kinky and do something about it, so you taking just one year seems pretty damn good!
Abel, 2009 will be a whole year filled with kink, rather than just 8 months, so if for no other reason than that it will be even better :-D
Winchester, I'm very lucky that all of my vanilla friends I've told have been very supportive.

Indy said...

It's taken most of my life, too, Eliane-- and I'm older than you! :-)

Still, it's all good!
