As we wrap up the year the world was supposed to end on.
Ahh 2012, what year you have been. So much has happened this year, a lot of bad, and some good I suppose but for the most part 2012 was a stinker… At least for me it was, and there are a few others out there who I’m sure feel the same way.
There have been immense tragedies this year; shootings, storms, fiscal cliffs, elections, sickness, and marriage disillusions. I started 2012 by moving, leaving home, and almost ending my marriage, coming back from that has changed me immensely, in addition to that finding out my grandmother ( who is one of the strongest people I know ) almost died of the big C, and loosing another grandmother to it. I’ve learned the frailty of life, and how relationships and friendships can go from great to not so great in the span of just a few weeks, and how some peoples life choices will affect not only them, but those around them, and I also learned who exactly my friends are and who I can trust.
There are other people I can trust sure, but for the most part if you cant trust and believe in yourself then there is no one else around who is going to pick up that slack, I guess that is what I’ve taken away from 2012. If you want something DONE, and not only done right, but done at all you need to do it yourself.
With that being said I’m hoping/praying/wishing/willing 2013 to be the best year ever, at least thats how I feel in my mind. I have many ambitions and pipe dreams I hope will come to fruition this year. I have a new job, going back to school, getting my finances back on track, and finishing up my book. I’m hoping for 2013 be the year I get signed with a publisher and can just work for myself… At least that’s the goal.
So here, here 2013, hope your a damn sight better than your predecessor.
