If the past year for you was a bit of a challenge this could be met with a sigh of relief & some renewed optimism that NEXT year will be that much better.
For others who both enjoyed & had their desires fulfilled you may be either continuing in great expectation, or hoping that the 'balance doesn't all of sudden tip' to the negative...
I like to look to the New Year as a time of both renewed hope & optimism, but with a dash of realism. I am full of new goals, new dreams & new lifestyle changes I would like to make...but realizing that the common denominator in all of this being accomplished is simply my own willingness to change.... & to commit to that change!!!
Asides from that, there is also the realization that many factors are outside my control...this past year, for example, I was very optimistic to take my own business & health to a new level...yet becoming pregnant in February didn't lend itself very well to either of those goals. All for a greater goal I say :)
What about yourself? What are your goals for the upcoming year??
