A few (‘bloggable’) things I am thankful for in 2009:
– This was my 5th year working for a big multinational software company, and it was the best one so far. This is a place that truly has changed my view of things. I continue to learn and challenge my limits every single day. I never thought I would meet so many amazingly smart people.
– Not bailing out on the stock market: Most of my investments got close to 50% returns since the end of 2008.
– America’s freedom: We moved yet again to a new city in 2009 and my family and I have never been happier.
– The US and its resiliency: For all the gloom and doom pushed by the media daily, the undeniable truth is that after 2 years in what is considered by some a cataclysmic recession, this is a country where everything continues to function and 90% of its active population is still working and generating wealth. Including me.
