…and in with the new.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but 2012 was pretty awesome as a whole.
Yes, it did have it’s roller coaster moments, but overall, the good moments were REALLY awesome. The down side is that the bad times were really bad. That said, it’s comforting to know that even when the chips were down, we all still managed to get through it.
I was just talking to a friend of mine about how quickly this year flew by. I mean, doesn’t seem like almost an entire year has gone by since we taped fifty $1.00 bills to her desk to commemorate that milestone 50th birthday, but apparently it has, because she just confirmed her birthday is this coming Saturday.
Are any of you making resolutions? I’m not. I gave them up for Lent last spring. (I’m kidding, I’m kidding…Sorry, Mom!) They are so fragile that I tend to break them without meaning to, so I am not having any of that in 2013.
As for the whole Mayan 12/21-thing? I’m relieved that we, as a planet, didn’t implode, explode, or cease to exist by some horrendous natural disaster. And relieved does not mean surprised. I honestly didn’t think that the physical world was going to end. I am, for the record, waiting on the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. I am not terribly well-versed in things of such a spiritual nature, however, if astrological ages change every couple of thousand years or so, and changes come with that? Sounds like a good idea to me. After all…Look at the state of the world as it sits today. I would like to think that it can’t get much worse, so the only place to go is up. Based on much of what I’ve read about this, we should be moving toward a kinder, gentler world. Now THAT would be something to write home about!
I wish for all of you prosperity, success, happiness, health, and most importantly LOVE and lots of it in the coming year.
Good-bye, 2012. You have been a learning experience, that’s for sure. Thanks for the memories!
Happy New Year Julie!! I see we have a common blogger “in like” ….Christian Mihai…I love his blogs too. What a small world in a great big blogosphere. Amazing!
It really is a small world! 🙂
Onward & upward. 😀
The year really did go by so quickly and i kind of feel I don’t have much to show for it. Aside from the lost 40lbs thing. Lol.
Hey, that 40 pounds is a big ol’ hairy deal! Happy New Year!!!
PS…I am so proud of you!!!!!
Julie, you constantly amaze me! You are so resilient and are able to see the good things after the smoke from the bad things has cleared. You are a rock, Girl!!
Thanks, Elaine. I have a friend that always told me that I was like a cat in that I always landed on my feet. I guess I still do, even though my knees aren’t as good as they used to be. 😉
