Well, in twelve hours we can kiss 2012 goodbye. Soooo much has happened for us this year- some heartbreaking, some inspiring, and some just laughable. The London Olympics, Kony 2012, President Obama being reelected, Whitney Houston's tragic death, One Direction invading America, Amanda Todd's suicide bringing bullying to the forefront, Lance Armstrong in the middle of a drug scandal, The Hunger Games entertaining millions, Honey Boo Boo being a household name, Hurricane Sandy devastating the Eastern shore, and PSY creating "Gangnam Style", the dance craze of the year.
Amidst all of this, I made a lot of personal changes in 2012. I quit my stable, prosperous management job, packed up the family and the fur babies and moved to the rainy, beach side Pacific Northwest. I was devastated by a miscarriage and thrilled to find out that my forever friend is finally having a baby. I started a new life venture in the fishing industry and spent my first non-retail holiday season at home with my family. I started crafting again and found my true passion.
foul-mouthed, sarcastic self and my readers just laugh and ask for more! (You guys are sick!) I have been invited to meetings and groups of writers who encourage each other, teach one another, and don't judge.
I am so excited for what 2013 holds for me. I am in love with my life for the first time in my life and it is the best feeling anyone can feel. I wish this for all of you... this peace and familiarity with oneself. Cheers to finding true love... cheers to loving yourself.
