I’m so very happy to see the year ending. Okay, it wasn’t that bad of a year. I mean, every year has its unwanted hardships, but I’ve had many blessings this year, too. The fact is, I’m just a “fresh start” kind of person. I enjoy the beginning of a new year, a new month, why, even a new day brings limitless possibilities of hope and excitement! Even if 2011 had been the best year ever, I’d still be happy to see it end, just so a new one could begin. I like new beginnings. I like making lists and goals. I like shooting for the stars.
I’m looking forward to 2012. I can’t control what happens in this new year, but I can control my reactions to those happenings. I want to do better at “reacting”. I want to have more faith and less panic when things go awry. (Don’t you love that word?) I want to read more, write more, and love more. I want to laugh more, relax more and work more. I want to worry less, eat less and doubt less.
How ’bout you? Got any New Year’s hopes and dreams?
Whatever the New Year brings, I pray that this is the year that we live for God more than ever.
Happy New Year!
