This year was a pretty good one for me while nothing major happened I have felt really content the whole year through - and that sometimes can be the best thing in the whole world. As every year comes to a close I usually look back and can see there was a theme or a lesson of sorts that I needed to work through. In 2011 I think it was taking personal risks and believing in myself in a different way by starting my Etsy shop and this blog, working from home so I could continue to have my kids apart of all my moments and mostly just realizing that failure isn't nearly as scary as never having tried. All of that led to many good things for 2012: not missing a beat with my boys, a thriving shop and getting to know so many of you through your blogs and mine. It may sound corny but I work from home and raise little ones at home, so having this blog has really been more of a positive for me personally than I ever would have imagined. I am constantly inspired/amused/validated/moved/entertained by all of you and it truly has made 2012 a great year.
Do you feel 2012 provided you with any lessons or skills you can carry forward into the new year? I think my lesson for this year was working on understanding the true meaning of having boundaries for oneself as well as not losing sight of my goals.
Any big new years night plans? This is one night I like to just stay in and kick it old school watching the ball drop with a bottle of wine. Have a happy and safe new years eve friends!
