I’ve always been one for loving new beginnings. Fresh starts. When most people are moaning about Monday mornings, I have always loved the idea of a brand new spanking week that maybe just maybe I can accomplish whatever it is I set out to accomplish. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that I love the beginning of a new year. I’ve never been one for making a big deal out of the holiday itself (hooray for a 10:30 bedtime!), but I do sure love reflecting back on the year that has passed and looking forward to the year that approaches.
So today, on one of the first few days of the year, I would like to thank 2011 for everything. A new house. A new puppy. And a whole lot of learning about myself. But, I’d also like to welcome 2012 with outstretched arms. If optimism really can make things go your way, then I just have a feeling that 2012 might be the best year yet.* With that said, be prepared for a lot of changes around here… that’s all I’m sayin’. For now.
What about you? Do you welcome each new year as it comes or mourn the passing of the last?
