Realize How Far You’ve Come

2012: Year in Review

I drove home from Nasheville, Tennessee last year on January first full of hope. I knew it was going to be the best year ever. 2012 is the year started this blog, became a Health Coach, began printing postcards in the hope of inspiring others, drove across country, got my first article published, treated and helped as many people as would let me, visited Mexico, California, Vermont, Washington D.C., Boston, Florida, Chicago, New Orleans, Vancouver,  Las Vegas, and music festivals in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.  I experienced a year full of friends, family, music, writing, education, mentors, weddings, learning, growth, exploration, creation and fun.

In this world we can never get enough. We always want more. Cathy, an amazing grace in my life who I constantly bother to read my writing, once said to me, “People forget to look in the rear-view mirror.” We get so focused on our futures that  we forget to look back see how far we have come. It is not about living in the past but an acknowledgement of  goals met, obstacles overcome, and ourselves. Learn hope for the future by watching how far you’ve come. Gain confidence in the knowledge that somehow, you made it through another year. We dwell on mishaps, our struggles, and the things not going our way. We are haunted by unmet wants.

Today, as you reflect on 2012 and do your best to welcome in a new and fresh year, relish in all you have done, all the people you have encountered and the fact that you are alive to watch it all happen.

2013, Your greatest year yet?

I’d put money on it.

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Best thing you did in 2012? Please share!
