Quotes for 2012

Pinned Image
I learned a lot in 2011 and while I am grateful for those lessons, I am welcoming 2012 with open arms. It’s nice to have a new year and a fresh start, isn’t it? In 2011, I learned the true meaning of trust, friendship, courage, and the importance of picking yourself up off the ground after falling flat on your face. It taught me that you can have everything in the world, but if you don’t have your health, none of it means a damn thing. I learned that sometimes we can be harder on ourselves than anyone else is on us. I haven’t quite learned to truly let go—of the things I cannot control, of the pain resulting from failures, of the things about myself and others that drive me nuts, but I am working on it and will continue to do so in 2012. I want to learn to live in the present and not overanalyze the past of agonize over the future. I’m sure it’s easier said than done, but I plan to give it my best shot!

  2. I always enjoy your blog…thanks for sharing inspiring thoughts for the new year. I relate to what a daunting feeling it can be to pick yourself up and begin again…I love that saying, “Failure forward to success.”. It really is the only way..willingness to try something new. Best wishes for 2012.
