Moving Forward - 2012

On Christmas Day, my father asked me to write a list of what I had achieved in 2011 and what I want to achieve in 2012.  2011 was a weird year, Ryan and I got married which was a very happy day for us, but a horrible, life changing day for others as we were married on the 11th of January the day the floods started to peak.  One of my best friends had her first child, a beautiful baby boy and they changed my view on families and children.  I was always someone who was scared of children, scared of the responsibility, scared of hurting them... Now I can't wait to have a family of my own, to create a life, a personality, a little person!  This year I have watched some very close friends try to move forward through loss, devestation and hurt.  To see people you love, suffer in a way you will never understand truly is heart breaking, but to see them come out the other side stronger and full of love is awe inspiring.  On the other hand, I achieved something I didn't think I would this year...Opening my shop.  My little haven of creativity... I am so proud of both Ryan and I for getting as far as we have, although most of what I hear about 2011 is doom and gloom, for me, it was generally pretty good!  So what is happening in 2012??  Well if I have learnt anything this year, nothing goes to plan, nothing no matter how much you prepare will be 'perfect.'  So if at the end of 2012 I can say I have achieved something and moved forward in some way, be that, spiritually, emotionally, mentally or financially, I will be happy with that!  So tonight, enjoy yourself!  Have that extra glass of bubbles and don't be afraid of a headache the next day!  Spend the money on a taxi and get home safely!  2012 will be what it will, who knows whats coming, all we can do is continue to move forward and enjoy every minute!  Happy New Year!! xxxxx
