And, though I love my life and have worked hard to make it exactly what it is, I'm ready to make it different. I'm ready to give myself permission to BE different. That's my goal for 2013: BE DIFFERENT.
I want to eat different foods and do different things. I want to have different experiences. I want to take different chances. They don't have to be permanent changes, in fact, I suspect most won't. But having the motivation and guts to BE DIFFERENT...that's significant for me.
So, here's to 2013. Here's to being different. Here's to taking risks and not being afraid to fail, or to succeed. Here's to continuing to define and refine myself and my life.
And, here's to you. I love you guys. I know LJ is becoming less in many people's lives, but I'm still here, and I still am so grateful for everything, and everyone, this medium has brought into my life. I wish you all nothing but peace, joy, and happiness in 2013. It's within all of our power to make 2013 amazing, LET'S DO THIS.
If you asked me for my New Year Resolution, it would be to find out who I am.
Let our New Year's resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
