I'll be honest, 2011 punched me in the gut and then kicked me while I was down.
Needless to say: IT SUCKED.
And while yes, it taught me some valuable lessons and gave me some things I really needed to open my eyes to... I'm more than desperate to leave it all behind.
I was really hoping that I could start 2012 with wide, fresh eyes and an open mind... and maybe a little luck.
But nope, I spent the last moments of 2011 in the hospital with a very sick baby (all is well now) and then today through me a personal curve ball that came out of nowhere.
So I'm officially asking for a do-over.
I want to pretend that my New Years starts right now... Ready.... 3,2,1... GO!
Happy New Years.
As of right now, I'm taking a deep, deeeeeeeeeppp breath and letting it all go.
I'm starting new, I'm starting fresh.
And I'm doing it with a slice of apple pie (if you're gonna do it, might as well do it right, right?).
I'm not going to go on and on that 2012 will kick ass and that it will be a life changing year (but you never know), but I will say that it will my goal to end every day with a smile and a hug from my babies.
And maybe one or two trips to somewheres I've never been.
I don't want to give 2012 too much pressure that it buckles from the fear of not living up to its expectations, but I'm going to do my best.
I hope you don't mind.
Happy New Years!
