Happy New Year!
Updated: Jul 21
Well here we are in 2014. Just over a year has passed since we made the move from Saurfang to Draenor - and to horde!! It's been quite a year, we have had our ups and downs, our highs and our lows. But Carnage Inc still remains as strong and determined as ever before!
I said it last year, and I will literally say it again; there is one thing that never fails to put a smile on my face, and that is the undeniable unity and friendship that forever shines within Carnage Inc. I know I have said it many a time before, but it remains forever true year after year with the comings and goings of each new guild member. It doesn't matter where in the world you hail from, we all share a common interest in wow. And over a very short space of time we are bound together by a great friendship.
I have no doubt with each year that passes by, Carnage Inc will continue to grow and thrive as a community and a raid force to be reckoned with! No matter how long you have been a member of Carnage Inc you should all be very proud of what we have achieved this year, and go into 2014 with the confidence and determination to continue our success.
As New Year is a time for reflections and resolutions, I'd like to share with you all again one of my favorite poems;
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
Nothing can be achieved without hope and confidence. Here's to 2014 and another chance for us to get it right!!
Happy New Year one and all.
