Ringing in 2012
The best part of New Years is the shift from one year to the next. Almost like a birthday. You have to have it in order to account for time but there is nothing monumental about the evening or day as a whole.
Maybe it is age, maybe it is a time of my own personal life, but I have begun to enjoy New Years more as I reflect on the past year and think about goals to set for 2012. I asked Jessica, my oldest daughter, if she had any new years resolutions this year. I absolutely love what she said. I always set goals for myself so if anything it is just another reason to reflect on what goals I accomplished and set new ones going forward. I couldn't agree more.
I set a series of goals for myself this past summer and have done a pretty decent job of achieving most of them and am really happy with the outcome. I know the world balance is used way too much but it truly defines what I continue to look for. I am almost over extended right now and am setting goals on how to say no more often, concentrate a little bit more on myself, enjoy the moment and stop moving at a lightening pace at all times. Oh, of course there is the addition of losing ten pounds which has been one of my annual resolutions since I was about 15.
I am excited about 2012. Am always the optimist. Lots of exciting things in the pipeline. I want to wish everyone who has been part of the Gotham Gal community a happy healthy 2012. Looking forward to hearing from all of you in the year to come.
