Happy Twenty-Twelve!

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.

I believe we all have potential. Whether that is to believe you are special and deserve to feel worthy everyday, which you are! Or, to merely *not* look at the ‘glass half empty’.  I understand how we can look back, and say ‘good riddance 2011!’  I might have muttered that once or twice in the past few days!

But from that sentiment, what was it that we wanted to see go?  If you could do it over would you?

Frankly, yes! I would do 2011 all over again! I know people who know me reading this are saying: “WHAT!?!?… are you nuts?”  And yes, maybe I am. But honestly, if I had to do all the not so nice stuff over again, I would still be able to do the amazing things all over too! And *that* is why. I would be able to hang out with my sons longer, go on the roller coasters with them again, have picnics, and s’mores. I would be able to see my new friends from Japan again, I would get more kisses, and I would be able to laugh for 365 more days with my sisterhood than I can now!  The bad stuff .. well ok.. that part sucked, but it still wasn’t as bad as the best part!

So for me, again, it’s a choice. I hope you make the choice to see the potential in your life for this new year 2012. It’s going to be fabulous year, full of love and glowing energy that will evoke a positive change for humanity. I believe this will be our best year yet. I can just feel it! I look forward to sharing it with you, and having even more s’mores, and <good> roller coaster rides. I wish for everyone reading this a healthy, loving, happy, wonderful year full of more laughs than tears.

And remember, if you truly believe, it will occur.

    May not be a roller coaster rider but still looking forward to sleigh rides, swimming, snacking and silly days ahead! Here’s to 2012!

      You probably think I’m stalking your blog. Anyway, I’m the same way and I’ve found myself doing the same thing lately. I remember specifically going on a cruise with my family after I graduated college and complaining about the awful parents who let their kids blow on the whistle on the life jacket when we had the safety meeting. I also remember, very clearly, my mother telling me she could not wait for me to have kids and hear what I had to say then! I can now totally imagine letting Dylan blow on the whistle on the life jacket because, I would think; awww, at least he’s still sitting!
