There were no glittering fireworks or celebrity studded celebrations for me this year as I eagerly waited to ring in the new year with hope of a better future Saturday. Instead I was blessed with something better. My family. We had a peaceful night together just sitting on the couch watching TV and waiting for the clock to strike midnight.
I’m happy for 2012 to be here because 2011 was just awful. I had to say goodbye to my mother who passed in November, I’ve been very sick and burglarized a few times. I’m not sure if I’m actually joyous the new year is here but I’m definitely relieved.
Hopefully this year will be better and free from all the pain and worrying that I experienced in 2011. In fact this year is the year that I feel like I will finally get my life back on track and become whatever it is I’m supposed to be.
