I THOUGHT it was going to be the best year EVER

Even though I was turning 30, I really thought 2011 was going to be the best year EVER. I had trips, birthdays, and anniversaries all planned out. They were going to go off without a hitch. Because, that's how I planned them. Even though (some of) the trips still happened, the birthdays, and the anniversaries too, they weren't exactly as I had envisioned them. Instead, this year (by far) has been the biggest year of heartache, sacrifice, and growth for me. So. Much. Growing.

I learned so much about myself. My strengths. My weaknesses. And, I pondered. A lot.

At the beginning of 2011 I did the whole "one word game." Where you choose one word to describe something you wanted to achieve/do. My word for 2011 was "balance." I wanted to achieve balance in all aspects of my busy life. Family, friends, work, school, and health. I think I did pretty well, and decided I wanted to play the game again. My word for 2012 is "BE." Yes, I'm pretty much cheating at my own game because it has more than one meaning to me.

  • BE in the moment
  • BE afraid
  • BE me
Maybe I should get them in vinyl and hang them on my wall? Oh goodness, I really am hilarious (wink). Here's to making 2012 the best year yet!
