Hello Everybody,

I hope this blog entry finds everyone's new year off to a good start! I can hardly believe it's the middle of the month already.

I started back to a full practice schedule this week. It feels good to be back into it full time. I needed the time away from the clubs to recharge and refocus myself for 2010. I have set my goals for 2010 and I think the main one is just to stay positive during the difficult times because in anything you do in life those times are going to hit. 2009 was a challenging year and the best thing that came out of it was learning on how to deal with the not-so-pleasant situations. Let's face it, you learn more from adversity then when everything is going according to plan. Anyway, I have put 2009 behind me but will take with me all the lessons that I was forced to learn!

I had some time this week to do some surfing on the Gold Coast. It felt so good to be in the water and it is probably one of my favorite things to do off the course. There's something about being in the ocean that gives me the sense of peace.

On a much more serious note, I want to send out my thoughts to all the victims of the terrible tragedy in Haiti. The damage is extensive and the number of injured or dead is estimated to be in the hundreds possibly thousands. If you have the opportunity and the funds I would encourage everyone to give what they can even if it's only a dollar or two. There are several reputable organizations that you can contribute to and I think the easiest way is through UN relief efforts by texting a $10 donation.

Have a good weekend and I'll write more next week.
