After a decade of philandering(好弄漁色), I'm going to start my thirties with a clean slate.
Maintaining a clean slate marriage is not simply about having an absence of offenses in your relationship. It is having a fresh stream of living water running through the heart of your relationship at all times.
I want to try and be positive now, because lets face it if you can't be hopeful on the 1st January then when can you be. My problems didn't evaporate on the stroke of midnight. But I am happy to carefully pack away 2008 and all its crap not to be opened and relived. 2008 was bad, but that was last year. The slate is clean, and I will try and make this year better, as best I can.
2. "clean slate" could also mean that something looks really amazing. It looks so cool that it can be called clean slate.
