December came and went. Before I knew it, it’s a BRAND NEW YEAR 🙂 Like every new year, I’m hopeful and excited about what the year could possibly bring.
Yes, if you know me, you know I’m a hopeless optimist. The sun will always shine, my problem in perspective is not a real problem and life is actually good. That doesn’t mean things don’t get me down and I don’t make mistakes. For the people who really know me, they know I’ve been sucker punched more than once by life and stumbled with my own life choices.
2011’s main life lesson, it is human nature to get complacent, suffering is the sucker punch life throws at you when you need it the most. I did say I was a hopeful optimist 😉 It’s a lesson I try and get my head around every year. And every year, I think I seem to have it figured out but nope, in the past 36 years I’ve yet to have a deep appreciation of why bad things happen to seemingly good people. I don’t know if I ever will figure it out in my lifetime but I’ve come to realise that big lofty goals aren’t quite my style. Some time last year, I decided that everyday with everything that I’m faced with, I want to try my best and make decisions from a good and honest place filled with love. It may not make me the richest or the smartest but I’ve come to realise relationship with people are much more important to me than material possessions.
To the cynic in me, I know I can only say this because I have enough. In 2012, it’s no different from other years, I hope to continue growing so much so that when the day comes that I do not have enough, I will still be able to do my best and make choices from a good and honest place filled with love.
Hey, no one is perfect and evolution is a daily journey. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m a little better today than I was yesterday 🙂
Happy New Year everyone and may it be filled with lots of memories that will keep you warm when you most need them 🙂
