2012-YOU DID ME RIGHT

I have been a little melancholy the last couple of days looking back on 2012.  I still have more questions that I wish 2012 had answered but maybe they will be revealed in 2013.  Most years I am more than ready for the year to be over and done with.  But this year was a really good year if you don't include my mini (okay okay maybe a wee bit bigger than MINI) emotional breakdown in November.  ~laffin~  Thank you God for good friends both in real life and on the net, a life coach and my tribe that caught me and set by back upright.
Just call me a Humpty Dumpty success story.  Yes Siree Bob.
 
I began the year so happy. Happier than I had been in a long time.  I turned 50.  I put myself out there and did something that I never even knew that I had the courage to do.   It was good...and I do not regret it.    I got my tattoo.  I became a proud owner of a scooter.  I emotionally crashed and burned.  I got my motorcycle license.  I said good bye to co-workers/friends that moved on.  I shared my home with my love. 
Then  I have had to learned how to live alone.  I have gone one year without a diet coke or any kind of soda.  I am learning to listen to my intuitive side.  I made a quilt.  I kicked my potholder fear.  I cried a lot.  I remembered why I stopped listening to country music.  I laughed a lot.   I prayed into the tiny ears of a baby girl who will eventually slip from my grasp.  I made party hats.  LOL mine turned out more like Vegas Show Girls or Elephant in a big Circus head pieces but I made them!
 2012 was the year of lessons.  Some of them came easy and some of them hard.  Some I had to be drug through  and some I had to laugh at and move on.  A few I had to realize were not MY lessons to learn and I had to let others fall.  I am thankful for each and every lesson.  So thankful.  I know that I still have a lot of work to do but it is all good.  Because of all of that, I am looking forward to 2013.  

2012  *BIG AIR KISS*  Thank you so much. 

2013  Come over here and give me a hug you big beautiful year!! Pink or Purple party hat?


..........I love you.  Ditto.

  5. Mindy, I love you girl! You rocked 2012 like a champ! And you have the party hat to prove it!
    This year, you will really step out, into a plane, to the wild unknown tropics, swim in the salt water (okay stand) walk the beach, find your own true treasures, those things that live inside you, just waiting to be unleashed. Yes, this is your year... Keep the hats... one for the beginning. One for next December. And this year I am dragging Diane to Texas too.... and we will be there! We can make hats.
    You inspire me Mindy, you too have held me up when I couldn't stand alone. I love you for that.

    Peace and grace

  8. It's all about learning the lessons, right?

    I am glad you are quilting now! And I am excited about your Color Run. Fun stuff. If you want to run it (or something else in the future) try Couch to 5K. That's how I got to 3 miles. :)

    1. Yes Ma'am it is about learning the lesson. I have found that you have to repeat it if you do not learn it. And you and I do not want to be held back now do we?!?!?!
