I want to say farewell to 2012 – it was a good year.
I remember as a child on the 1st day back to school following New Years the teacher would write in big numbers on the chalkboard the new year. And I would think “Wow. The future.” The future held so many unknowns, so many mysteries. But that was when I was 7, 8, 9, 10…. and at that age my learning curve was steep and my ‘unknown’ curve was even steeper.
As one gets older life is broken down into increments of time. 4 year university degree, 20 year mortgage, 2 year bank loan, net 60 days, 40 hour work week, 8 hour shift, 3 weeks holiday, 2 ½ hour movie, 4 hour drive, 6 week delivery date, etc. Life is intervals of time mapped out in doable increments.
The future is not quite as much a mystery but life undoubtedly is.
So let’s welcome in the New Year and start 2013 as a new beginning with lots of wonderful opportunities that lay ahead in our future.
Health and happiness for the New Year.
