Another post, you ask? And so soon after the first one? Well, a new year is upon us, and brand new years beg to have introspective words slammed together about them and passed around for all to view. Personally, my mind boggles at the fact that we’re on the verge of 2012. I couldn’t even have fathomed this milestone as a kid, and certainly not without a Jetson’s lifestyle. Where is my jetpack?
I love new years eve, and I’ll be spending this one on Skype sharing a few laughs and long distance memories with a lifelong friend. We’ll ring in the new year and share the sounds of doors closing while others creak open. A peaceful end, and a joyous beginning, with resolutions dancing throughout cyberspace.
Huh… maybe a bit Jetson-ish after-all.
I also love making those pesky resolutions, and I’ve gotten a lot more savvy at them as I’ve grown older. I can even manage to keep a few of them going instead of letting them slide by mid February. Maybe because they’re more genuine in meaning and not just something frivolous to write down. Maybe it’s because I now know the results of sticking to a vision that brings me joy. Or, maybe it’s just that the path is clearer at long last. Hell, maybe I just like setting goals.
Many of my friends and family have suffered great losses this past year, and still others have found enrichment. Let’s take the time tonight to embrace the being-ness of it all and feel thankful that we’re not on this wild ride alone. We’re in it together.
I wish you all a year of pushed limits, broken boundaries, embraced challenges, and enlightening truths. Wipe the slate clean at midnight and take just one step toward that something you’ve always wanted to do. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
Let’s kick 2012 into orbit. Cheers!
And feel free to share your resolutions with me. I’d love to hear them. There’s power in sharing.
