As I look back over 2012, on the surface, it seems that I didn’t accomplish a lot. After all, I am no closer to being independently wealthy than I was a year ago. I weigh the same (give or take) as I did a year ago. I am still single. I still struggle to be fully organized.
But if I take careful stock of my year, I see that I accomplished several incredibly important things.
I watched Thing Two earn his 3rd degree black belt in taekwondo.
I celebrated my dad’s 70th birthday.
I changed my history related to Christmas Day.
I joined the team at Studio30Plus.
After a blog breakdown of epic proportions, with the support of a few key players in my world, I completely refocused my blog.
And just yesterday, I paid my whopping $.05 library fine. I enter 2013 as a citizen in good standing with the library.
While I’d love for 2013 to be the year I fall in love, win the lottery, lose 50 lbs and organize my life into simple perfection, I realize that 2012 was a pretty good year, even without those things. And 2013 hasn’t been written yet.
I’m ready to write the next chapter.
With joy and anticipation.
With gratitude and acceptance.
With love and laughter.
