"And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been"
A lot of bloggers have been compiling their top posts from 2011- a sort of highlight reel for the past year. I wasn't able to do that.
2011 wasn't my favorite year. There was plenty of good, sure- but there was a lot of struggle. And though climbing the mountain is beautiful in and of itself, I'd rather keep focusing on getting to the peak and seeing the view from there. I've finally come to realize that there are no guarantees in this life. So I will make my resolutions, but make them quietly and gently, knowing they may bend and that's okay. As long as my family is together and our house is warm, it really doesn't matter if five pounds are lost or fifty books are read this year.
Some people say 2012 will be the end of the world as we know it.
But I'm hoping it's just the beginning.
Happy New Year.
