Farewell 2012, its been swell

I did a mental recap of my 2012 and I’ve concluded that my good definitely outweighed my bad. That probably sounds so cliché, but it’s my truth.
I’d actually made myself say a verbal thank you (aloud) for every recollected instance or situation that I’d placed in my “good” column. Close to three hours had passed before I started nearing the end of my good list.
By that time, tears were streaming down my face.  I realized then that I didn’t even have close to enough thank you’s in me to match all of the good that I’d (along with my children) experienced over the course of 2012.
Of course, some unfavorable and not-so-good things happened during the course of the year, but they were so far few and in-between. In no way did they account for much, when I matched them up against everything that I’ve been blessed with.
But instead of focusing on those unfavorable things, I chose (and am continuing to choose) to reflect and energize all of the good positive things. That’s what I want more of!
My life is really good.  I didn’t have a clue of how good it actually was until I challenged myself, the other day, to recollect as much of my good as I could.
Each of our lives are good.
I challenge you to reflect on all of the good that has happened on your behalf and say a few thank you’s. Just watch how innumerable they are! Bet you’ll be amazed, too!

2012 Closing

To all of my loyal, returning, new and 1st-time readers: Thanks for all of your support. I appreciate each of you more than you’ll ever know! I look forward to sharing more of my family’s stories and life happenings with you in the upcoming year. My intentions are to be more consistent as a writer, storyteller and as a reader. So, here’s to us! May our 2013 be filled with abundance, lots of great stories, happiness, meeting of goals, success and PEACE!
Oh 2012! Here is where I bid thee a sweet farewell…..it’s been swell!

My Daily Post Challenge

Wow! This is not starting out as I’d planned it! I just wrote a post and tried to post it when an error ocurred. Now where is my post? Hecks if I know! Let’s try this again…..

I’ve searched high and low for a  2012 Post a Day Challenge, but I couldn’t find one that I wanted to participate in. So I challenged myself to make a post each and every single day of this year (well, starting from today!) to my blog. When I first started my blog I wanted to share my life, our lives, with the world. I really do have an amazing life, with amazing children, family and so many new friends– I have many ups, I’ve had my downs and it truly does make for good reading, humor, examples and advice. My making a post a day in 2012 will get me back to my initial intentions and promise, while disciplining me to master my craft! Get your reading eyes and/or glasses ready, check your e-mail inbox (for those of you who have subscribed to my blog via e-mail) and prepare yourselves for a drastic increase of writings from me!

I am so excited to share our 2012 with all of you!
