I know I’m a few days late but Happy New Year to all. I needed a few extra days to process the year that was.
Of course, I have no idea what 2012 has in store. But, if it’s anything like what 2011 was for me personally, I’m game. Although I am going to make every effort to make it better. I’m going to make every effort to be better.
I feel as I did at the start of 2011 (which was as I felt at the dawn of 2010). I felt a change that I can now identify as maturity. In a real and personal way 2011 was my coming out (if I may use the phrase).
Gone are the days of grand resolutions that have no relationship with who I am as a person.
Instead of running away from something, I spent 2011 running toward something. The difference is stunning.
Friendships evolved and changed in 2011 in ways expected and unexpected. I’ve always considered myself a loyal friend but last year I learned to let go. I can’t be all things to all people and my friends can not be everything I think I want them to be. We all have our process and whatever happens, I know we are all designed to move forward.
I look back on 2011 with a smile. It was everything I needed it to be.
