Happy New Year!


It was a fantastic 2012 and I am looking forward to this year…2013!

I have to admit that it makes me feel¬†slightly old ūüôā but then again kind of grown up. If I look back at how far¬†I have come over the past year,¬†I have learned a lot. I honestly never thought I would live to see 2013. It seemed so unreal back in the 90’s, I thought we would have flying cars, teleporting, and laser¬†guns. We may have a few prototypes of these things but I have to admit I was looking forward to things being like the Jetsons.

I didn’t set a new years resolution, gasp, I know right? What was I thinking? I have a few thoughts on goal setting. Mine is usually not set out that far ahead. I like to set daily and weekly goals not yearly goals. And this is why…

There are always goals we jump for and panic to reach in a timely manner, succeeding at times and failing at others. What matters the most is what you have learned along the way and how you have grown as an individual. Did you reach your goals? If not what was the greatest moment along the way, and what would you do differently?

I used to set unreachable goals for myself that I would fail, but what is failure really… and is it that bad to not reach a goal if you have learned something magnificent in the process. Now¬†I could set a goal for myself saying, ” I am going to paint the most realistic painting and have it hanging in a local gallery by the end of the year.”¬†However, while reaching this goal, I start to¬†realize that I have painted¬†over 15¬†abstract scenes, flowers, and clouds but no realistic scenery. At this point should I be disappointed in myself, or should I rest¬†satisfied in the fact that I am a¬†decent¬†abstract drawer/painter? Failure is only failure if you give up and stop trying to reach your goal. Even if you never get the that first designated goal, your journey has led you to a beautiful place of growth which in itself is priceless.

With each step¬†we take towards a set goal,¬†we learn a little bit more about ourself…what¬†we’re made of…capable of…the strength within us… and a clearness of who¬†we really are and how far¬†we can travel on our own two feet.

In the end, each¬†journey is our own to experience. Whether we have people in our lives who step in tune with us, or we are alone…we are ultimately walking¬†the path solo with a singular purpose… finding the answers only our soul searches for.

So this year I will take a deep breath and enjoy the world around me. I will accept the positive and not be blind to the negative for in it there is growth on how to be a better person. I will love my children boyfriend and family with a humbled heart knowing our world will not last forever. Does this sound like a resolution? kinda but it is more like a declaration of independence I will create for myself. ūüôā

Happy New Year Everyone!
