We're coming to the close of another year. Good bye 2012 and hello 2013! Some people are eager to see the year end because it hasn't been a good for them while others are anxious about what the new year will bring. Personally, I'm eager to enter 2013 because I've had such a great 2012. I'm expecting more great things to continue in the new year.
The first of each year is the time to make a fresh start. It is a time to reflect on the previous year. Looking back, I see my accomplishments and I'm proud. I think about what I wanted to do and for whatever reason, I didn't. I won't beat myself up over it. Maybe the timing wasn't right. Or maybe it wasn't something I should have done anyway. Every day didn't go my way, but I chose to be happy anyway. Unfortunate situations and disappointments happened, but they are a part of life. I didn't let this prevent me from enjoying the good experiences I had throughout the year.
God blessed me to live this year and I thank Him for it. My life is now filled with more great people. I went to some great places. I experienced some great things. I'm excited about the new year and what it will bring. I saw a lot of good things happen in 2012, but there's more to be seen in 2013.
