“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

It’s exhilarating, the thought that turning the page on the calendar allows a fresh start.

All those things I’ve been meaning to do.  All those areas I know I could improve.  All it takes is the tick of the second hand to midnight and it’s all possible.

Of course, it always was.  But sometimes we need a little symbolism to give us a nudge.

This seems like a big year stretched out ahead of us.  (I think they all do on January 1st, don’t they?)

It’s ten years this year since I met Matt, got engaged to Matt, married Matt.  Found out I was pregnant with my first baby.  That feels big.

Lots of happy things and sad things happened in 2012, but I feel like, for me, the year came out more good than bad.  That’s a nice feeling at midnight on December 31st, to look back and feel positive about the past and hopeful for the future.

As always, I am hopeful that the year ahead will be more happy than sad.  Although I know the sad is inevitable.

I have lots of hopes and goals for 2013.  Matt and I sat with our coffee by the fireplace this morning and discussed our “resolutions”, and I was happy.  It’s a good start.

All the best in 2013.
