Original title, I know.... but if the shoe fits.
2012 had it's up and downs. I'm going to try not to dwell on the negative and focus on the positive.
This year I broke through a few fears and did things I thought I would never do for the first time.
I went to my first blogging conference (BlogHer12). I took a train to NYC by myself. I took a NYC cab by myself. I even ate off a NYC food cart for the first time.
This summer I also went on my first cruise. I have a bit of a fear of boats so that was a big deal for me. It was a great time and we made great memories but I don't think it's "my kinda vacation."
Then, in early December I had a table at my very first craft show. It was an experience. I have never felt so vulnerable before in my whole life! I mean, going to the gyno is less uncomfortable then sitting there while people walk by looking at crafts you put so much into making.
Those are just a few highlights of 2012. I'm looking forward to 2013 and what it has to bring.
I can't believe that this year I'm going to lose one teenager and gain another. Nicholas will be 20 and Thomas 13. It seems crazy to actually think of it that way.
It goes without saying that I plan to be more organized, more financially responsible and pay attention to my health in this coming year. But the most important things for me in 2013 is to break through even more fears, be happy and positive.
Happy New Year!
