Good bye 2012 and good riddance!
Without getting into the personal details of my life, 2012 has been a bitch. Absolutely the most life altering, laborious, challenging, transforming,
compelling, problematic year of my life.
However, now that the smoke has cleared, and I rise from the ashes, I must say... I have finally reached the summit in achieving exactly what I was
after. What I worked so hard for through so many years.
Now I'm finished with me. I want to volunteer more and help other people with my skill set.
From everything I've seen transpire throughout the year, I learned a lot about people, this country, and myself.
What have you learned in 2012? What frightened you? what challenged you? what made you angry?
What made you cry in happiness.... in sadness? I reflect on some here, but I'll leave some out for your perspective input.
Was it war? Civil unrest?
How about the frustration of an election year? The finger pointing and divided country?
Do you fear our government, the lies and promises, the coverups?
Were you affected by disaster, catastrophe?
Were you betrayed?
Did you fall from grace?
Or did you rise to success...
Was it the incomprehensible horror? Or the absurdity?
Perhaps it was the loss of someone you loved.
Or the birth of something wonderful..
For me it was as much of a stressful challenge as it was a life time achievement. Either way,
I'm happy to see it go. Unfortunately, when comes to us all, I still don't see that light at the end of the tunnel moving much closer at all. I will,
however, remain optimistic and strong, and I will persevere in the end, carrying as many of those who stumble as I possibly can along with me.
