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.
