About five years ago I started a little tradition that I've repeated every year since. On New Year's Eve, I spend some time reflecting on the year, and come up with a theme. From there, I list the highlights from the year - the good, the bad, and everything in between. The theme for 2011 is reality. Reality was a frequent visitor at my door this year, especially recently. Now you might think this is a bad thing, but I actually view it as a very good thing! I needed a good dose of reality, and I'm glad I got it.
What will 2012 will bring? Who knows. I'm going to do my best to take things one day at a time, and try to make every moment one worth living.
