It’s the start of the new year, one that is going to be pivotal for my family. The last couple have years have felt like living in limbo. We (my husband and I) have a lot of balls up in the air right now and they should all be landing somewhere over the next 12 months. By the time we ring in 2013, we will no longer be standing in front of two paths trying to figure out which one to take. Life will have told us which one is ours and we will have started down our path. Usually I prefer to choose my own path but in this case we just have to wait and see what happens.
So it’s 2012 now. It sure does not feel any different than yesterday, but so many of my friends had a hard time in 2011 and certainly need (and deserve) for this to be a better year. I hope that this year brings good things for every one of them.
As for me, this is the year I will turn 40. (Holy crap, I just said that out loud, didn’t I?) That too seems like a pivotal point in life, doesn’t it? That sure is a big number. I have never been bothered by a birthday before but this one might just get me.
Over the past week a lot of my blogging friends have been discussing what they would like to accomplish this year. Here’s what I know going into 2012 and it is really simple. Life is what you make of it. This year I want to be more engaged and more fulfilled. I am working on redefining my own definition of success in this 40th year and those two words are not only the first that come to mind as my own personal keys to success.
What do you have in mind for this year? What are your power words, your own keys to personal success?
