It is hard to believe that a new year is here. 2012 …I was thinking the other day about how there was such hype about 2000 and the millenium and now…amazingly…in the blink of an eye…it is 2012.
My life has changed so much in the last 12 years.
I was just taking on the part of my job that I totally love and has become such an integral part of me.
I was preparing for my life as a mom and could have never imagined how much heartache – and heartjoy it would bring me.
I would get to work for 7 years with someone who set the standard for honesty and communication, and who taught me so much about how to be a leader…and I endured his departure despite the personal sadness it caused me.
I lost my mother – who I miss almost everyday and wish that she could know my children.
This year I have endured the most stressful year of my career and it has brought me to my knees on more than one occasion. I have wondered if it was worth it and whether I should “pack it in”. And I have had the blessings of friends who have picked me up off my knees and helped me to keep moving on.
I look forward to 2012. I will keep moving forward and know that the right path will show itself.
I hope that you all have a year filled with more blessings than sadness – but enough sadness to recognize your blessings and the wisdom to dwell on what is important and not on what isn’t.
