  1. Blessed New Year to you vivienne! Having answers to all these questions will definitely be a most helpful first step to find your direction and purpose in the days ahead! Honestly I cannot answer many of these questions yet, but asking oneself is a good starting point in life.

  2. Hi Vivienne!

    I always like to be guided by instincts; I feel God wants me do that. I first bumped into your blog not knowing what is in store for me. You’ve been so helpful all this while.
    The greatest gift of 2007 is to know that there exists a world of good people who can change your life. Especially for the unfortunate lot who seek for professional help.
    I wish and pray that 2008 brings in lot more challenges to test our skills, thereby grow and be fired by the passion in what we believe in.
    I like to thank all the people, especially you, who have been a constant source of inspiration in 2007 and seek their continued support in the year ahead. Wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2008!

  3. I learned a lot about people and blogging in this last year. I met nice people (like you!) who don’t know me at all, but still like me. :) Thanks for adding me to your list of people who would reply. I think these questions are great and I think they really will help to focus my energies in the directions to which I want them to go. Happy New Year Vivienne. Thanks for being such a good friend!
