Every year we find ourselves looking back on the past year and wondering where it went. Why does it seem that time goes by so fast and we still find that we have yet to complete or accomplish our past goals and New Year’s resolutions. With the new year once again starting within less than an hour. I find myself once again reflecting over my mimosa what will the new year bring? This past year has not been the best year for me and a lot of other people. Even though I have struggled a lot the last six months or so. I still find myself hopeful for better things to come and smile as I write this blog.
I am choosing to believe that this will be MY year and finally I will be able to shake off all of the past disappointments and start fresh once again. I have a few plans up my sleeve that I will be sharing on this blog. So as I write this blog and reflect I plan and dream for what is to come. 2011 was not a good year for me but I feel it was a year I needed to grow and learn. I learned even when you are at your lowest you will eventually be alright. That what doesn’t hurt you will make you stronger. Life is about the quality of people in your life not the quantity. Sometimes you have to make hard decisions that hurt but you know being true to yourself is more important than living a lie. Learning to live on less money and have fewer material things are actually good and that no one is keeping up with the Joneses anymore.
This past year I have found myself humbled by life and the economy and I appreciate what I have and who I have in my life more. I am blessed beyond belief with love and good people. I have two adorable cats that love me no matter what, I also have amazing friends and family. Life can be a challenge but that is what makes it worth living and I am so looking forward to an amazing and blessed 2012!
May your 2012 be what your hopes and dreams are made of and may you find your true happiness in life for the new year and beyond. So long 2011 and bring on 2012!!
