Good Riddance

This just proves that I have found my muchness. I HATE posting pictures of myself. However I'm doing a photo a day project and the first day is a self portrait. This is as good as it gets.

Oh 2011. I'm not too sad to see you go. Don't get me wrong a lot of good things happened in 2011. But a lot of crap (excuse my crassness) happened too. By far the hardest year we've had. So I'm sorry to say this but 2011 I'm breaking up with you. I'm leaving all my negative feelings for you on the 31st of December. I'm on to bigger and better things.

Now 2012. That's a different story. 2012 looks to be better. Still hard. But better. At least the struggles I see on the horizon in 2012 will all be to better our little family. Hopefully they will all lead to great things. The only way to a wonderful life is through hard work. This I know. There are things that I don't want to do that I have to do in order to move our family forward. And I'm proud to say that I'm brave enough to handle those challenges. My words for last year were Simplify & Muchness. I may not have simplified as much as I wanted to. But this much is for sure. I did find my Muchness. So it looks like 2011 wasn't as much of a disappointment as I thought it was!

This year I want to continue to see how brave I can be. But I want to dig a little deeper. What 2011 lacked was action. I want to find what really inspires me and do it. Figure out what I'm really passionate about and live it. I'm the type that gets wild ideas and then they pitter out. Not this year. This year I'm going to learn to follow through. Even if the idea seems crazy. This year I'm going to put my whole heart into whatever I do. Even if it seems impossible. This is the year I'm going to make something of myself. Just you wait 2012. The word for this year is action. I'm going to try with all my might to act on the things I think are most important. There are a lot of changes that we've have talked about making in our life in the past. And they haven't gotten done. This is the year to change. Change requires action. So that's what I'm going to do.

So 2011 I'm done with you. 2012? Your future looks bright my friend.
