I have been thinking a lot about the start of a new year. Usually, I do not give it much attention – new year, whoopity-doo. (Yes, that is a word. Ok – maybe not, but it works.) I think because I am mom now and realize how fast time really does fly by, causes me to ponder on the more important things in life. Reflecting back on 2011, I think about what kind of wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, employee I was to all the people in my circle of influence. I think about what would I like for people to see me as – a positive person? A world changer? A good person? Successful? Loving? Compassionate? Giving? And the list goes on. I also have been thinking about what I would like to accomplish for this new year.
I love fresh starts. This year feels like a brand new clean canvas that I get to artistically paint with each journey and day 2012 brings me. I have decided not to overwhelm myself with lots of goals, although I do have a few. I want to greet each day with excitement. Sounds cheesy, I know. I am so blessed. I am excited about this new year. I have lots of great people I get to share this short life with – I do not want to take it for granted. Let’s make that a challenge for each of us – take in and appreciate each day of 2012. Celebrate the good days, embrace the bad days, and count all of your blessings.
Happy New Year!
With love from all of us at Wild Sorbet
