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.
