So, 2010 & 2011 were rather crappy for me; yes they were. Many things occurred that I would much rather forget. I was passed up, kicked around, rejected and degraded..(oh woe is me..I know)..
|I never wear this much make-up|
I will say with certainty that my crappy start opened my eyes to many things; made me finally wake up and smell the coffee so to speak I was not thankful for the things that happened when they happened, but I am today. I think sometimes we all need to hit a low in order to truly understand the good; or see the path that we ought to take.
So Mr.Claus, even though I learnt a lot; I'm not asking for a crappy start to 2012... I mean don't even go there. What I'd really like this year is as follows:
Courage; To do what it is I'm meant to do. To take more risks; start living my life to it's fullest.
Confidence; To be my self. To stop worrying about what others might thing of me; what others might think about my opinions...to know it's really ok to have a difference of opinion.
Patience; Life gets busy. I'm juggling a full time job, working in two different cities, trying to support my love of writing, spend time with my husband, quality time with my kids, and to do this with minimal sleep. To remember that everything gets done in good time.. it always does.
|I could have written this..|
Empathy; The older I get the less empathetic I become. You've got a lot of work to do? Job Security!! You're Sick, You're Tired? Hey join the sick & tired club..I'm the president.. anyways..I think a shot of empathy might do me some good.
|This is a shot of Empathy...not tequila.. honest|
Health; Good health for myself and my family both mentally and physically.
Acceptance; Enough love in my heart to be more accepting of things; situations and people. To be more trusting and less sceptical. To accept that I'm where I am for a reason and run with that.
Santa, I know it may be hard to fabricate my requests in your workshop, but anything you could do would be much appreciated.
