It is New Year’s eve. 2011 has been a year of growth, definitely. I really got in to the groove of my new life as a wife and feeling like a human being, not just a worker bot. 2011 really was the year of letting go of the plan and learning to trust myself. I really thought I knew what I wanted. I was so sure of it when I left my job as a teacher. But things don’t always work out the way they are planned for a reason. One day I read a really great book, I went online and found a really great writing community in my back yard and my life has been changed ever since. I am learning to dream and learning that dreaming and taking risks is totally worth it. I don’t plan on setting resolutions for 2012. I intend on being open to what comes down the hatch. Being open has really worked in my favor. That doesn’t mean that I will stop writing or being deliberate. No, it means that I continue to work on being my authentic self, to listening to my body, mind and heart. I am so grateful that all that this year has brought. I am open and accepting to all that 2012 has to bring. I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year’s eve!!
