What a year. It has been quite the roller coaster ride. And by the way, I do NOT like roller coasters! A lot has happened this year. Some good, some really good, and some... not so much. My motto has always been "change is good". And I still believe it to be true. However, well, let's just say that too much of a good thing doesn't always seem good. I know that it has all been for the best. I know that I have grown and learned a lot of lessons this year. But there have been some times this year that have been really really hard. I am not sad to see this year end. I am looking forward to the promise of a new year with new opportunities and new beginnings.
Just to clarify, it wasn't a bad year. Just a hard one. I did reach my main goal for 2011. I set out to take better care of me and to make me a priority in my life. I have come a long way. I still have a ways to go. But God is still working on me, so I won't give up on me, either. I have stopped treating myself like I don't matter. I have given myself permission to enjoy my life. And I have grown in so many ways.
So, it's time to say good bye to the old year and look forward to the new year. It holds much hope and promise. A new adventure is just around the corner, and I am not going to miss a minute of it! Watch out 2012, here I come!!!
