This shall be my mantra for 2012.
Often this, the last day of the year, is one for reflecting on the past year. I'm not doing that this year. I can no longer dwell on the sadness, the stress and the uncertainty of 2011. I'm finished with this year.
I am moving on. In 2012, I believe in me. I have infinite faith. I am stronger. I am wiser. I am full of hope. I am resourceful. I will not take "No" for an answer. I am determined. I am who I am.
At the age 37, I believe that I have the perspective that my 20 something self did not have. I believe that each experience I have, good or bad, is a learning experience. I believe in signs. I believe we should follow the leads that present themselves and seem to be the inherent answers to the questions of our souls.
I believe all I have to do is keep going; keep showing up each day. I believe I don't have to have all the answers today.
I believe that life isn't worth living if we don't follow our dreams. I believe that our dreams can change. I believe that deep down inside each of us we have everything we need to succeed, whatever that term means to you.
In 2012, I resolve:
to succeed on my terms;
to follow through;
to keep moving;
to be patient;
to be persistent;
to love without ceasing;
to laugh often;
to feel deeply;
to think freely; and
to continue following my dreams.
Who knows where those dreams will lead me. It is with excitement that I face this New Year. BRING IT ON because.... I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
How do you feel about the New Year? Do you have any new year's resolutions? Over and out...
