2012 is almost over. How did that happen? It seems like yesterday I was moving into these new digs and saying hello, but in actuality this space is 384 days old already.
Where did the year go?
2012 was a hell of a wild ride. (And I do adore wild rides!) To say I remember all of it sitting here now would be a bold faced lie, but I can say that there are some incredible memories in my head somewhere about everything that went down this year.
As one of my bosses said in my review, “You’ve had a really good year personally and professionally. How are we going to top that next year?” He was kidding about topping it although I’d like to better this past year professionally if I can.
I didn’t set any resolutions for the year, I set a list of things I hoped that 2012 would look like and I tried to set goals for the year (mostly which I failed at in one way or another.) And my monthly goals totally fell by the way side – whoops. Was it otherwise what I envisioned? In many ways, yes. I missed out on a few but that’s ok. Carry it forward.
It was an awesome year in a lot of ways. There was a great vacation with engagement to round it out, fun trips, new babies, new friends, good times with old friends, getting married, more new babies the list of wonderful things goes on and on.
Almost every single day there was something that brought a smile to my face.
There were really hard times too. Losing Mehmere, Nanny being sick, losing my blogging mojo, my brother’s return and recovery, helping friends and holding them up until they could help themselves, adjusting to living together and married life just to name a few. That said, I think I was definitely was able to keep a lot in perspective and only flipped out a few times (more than I should have). I reached out for help when I needed it, accepted it when it was given without being asked. Much was difficult, but little was devastating.
Even with the hard times, I have to say it was a really good year. Thank you karma or whatever brought it about. I’m a lucky, spoiled, and very blessed girl and I am thankful every day to be me.
What else can I say other than I look forward to continued growth in myself, in my relationships and more fun in 2013.
