~*~Last year at this time, I was larger and less happy than I am this year. 2012 was a year of hard work, a year of many questions and a few answers, and a year of change. I found motivation and courage to confront some things in my life that were not the way I wanted them to be. I also found plenty more things to work on.
So, with the dawn of 2013, I thought I'd tell you my wants and wishes for the new year. Mostly I want to rid myself, my space, and my life of some clutter. Not all of it, mind you, cause that's kind of who I am. But there are things hanging around that need to go. I want to surround myself with only the people and things that bring joy, positivity, and support. I want to be only joy, positivity and support for others. I want to forgive my own shortcomings and embrace each and every part of my child and what it means to be her mother.
If I can lose a few more pounds along the way, awesome. If I can crochet some new things and find a way to list more inventory on a daily basis, right on. But when I look back at 2013 next New Year's Eve, I want to be able to say that I made good and hard choices. That I was strong and wise. That my work and my existence was a source of love and inspiration and comfort for others. That I looked self-doubt and weakness in the eye and winked.
So, now you. Please share...What are your hopes and dreams for the coming year?
