this excerpt is from the AWESOME CALENDAR 2012 for MONDAY, DECEMBER 31. i just want to share it with everyone, because i'm sure everyone can relate to it. here it goes...
It's been a long year.
Some crushing lows slapped you and smacked you around. There were times your heart dipped and you squinted back tears while your stomach squeezed so tightly you couldn't sleep. Loved ones hurt, friends didn't stay, someone dear to your heart drifted away.
But as you walked your hard path down your long, bumpy road some awareness and strength dripped into your bones. This year you grew in ways you don't even notice yet. As you struggled you empathized, as you slipped you understood, as you worked you earned, as you looked you learned, as you dared you grew, as you jumped you flew.
Yes your dreams are still focusing and your passion is growing. Your energy is still bubbling and your story keeps going.
So stop for a second to smile at everything you've done this year...everything you've seen...everywhere you've been...
so for this coming new year, we'll be wiser and stronger. have a happy one!
