It was this time last year that I wrote a post about the “resolutions” [or rather, lack thereof] I had for 2012, and a brief recap of 2011. Today I went back and read it. I’m really glad I wrote that post because now I have such a different view on it. It is so good to be able to go back and review where you’ve been. Not to live in the past, but to put the present in perspective.
A lot has changed for me in the last 12 months. I was so happy to welcome the new year last night. I never want to wish away time spent here on earth, but 2012 was a whirlwind. A lot of good happened, and a lot of bad tried to trump that good. I refuse to let that happen. I’m torn this year on whether a “recap” is appropriate. I’m sure I’d like to look back a year from now and pat myself on the back, saying “wow, you came through a really dark time, way to go!” but I also think that maybe it’s all better just left behind. That was what midnight was for me. I spent the evening with a small group of very close friends and family and we built a fire while it was snowing. I drank some wine and sledded down the hill in my back yard on a piece of cardboard. Most significantly, I showed 2012 the door.
I’ve got big plans for 2013.
And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
I’m going to lose some weight. Maybe I’ll talk my husband into helping me make a baby. ;) I’m going to watch my little brother marry an amazing woman. I’m going to craft. craft. craft. I’m going to be the best mommy, wife, sister, daughter, and friend I can be. I’m going to be the new-and-improved-Kylee. And I’m going to kick 2013’s butt! What do you say… wanna come along? <3
