Happy New Year!
Here we are, at the end of another year, and ready to step into a new one. Before I get too wrapped up in my New Year's Eve plans, I like to put the focus on the year I'm still standing in. Unlike some, I'm not so eager to push 2011 out into the cold. It's been an amazing year, and I want to pause to properly thank it. No point in going into all that's happened. If you've been reading here, you know. If not, you can back up and find out if it interests you. I'll just say, it's been one helluva ride, and I'm grateful for every twist and turn.
I also look forward to 2012. I love a new start, and I love making plans for a fresh new year. One of my many mottos is, Make a plan, and plan to change it. I believe in putting out there what we want, and then staying open to things we haven't even thought of. Most often, the Universe gets it even better than we do.
Things are changing faster than ever in this world, and it's hard to keep up. Sometimes I think it's best to just throw our hands in the air and holler Weeeeeeeeeee!!! as loud as we can. It makes it easier to enjoy the ride, turn fear into thrills, and know that we're buckled in, and ultimately safe, so matter what.
Here's to 2011. I hope you have some fond memories of it, or at least some gratitude for the lessons it brought. And a big warm welcome to 2012. I can't wait to see what happens next.
