dear 2013,

i don't make new year's resolutions.  i wouldn't keep them anyway.

i am looking forward to this new clean slate for 2013 as an opportunity for a new beginning.

i am vowing to keep positive everyday.  i am in the midst of reading a wonderful book called three good things.  the title of the book was arrived at by the wisdom of the  authors mom who told her no matter what,  you can find three good things in every single day.  some days there will be more and some days you might struggle to find three good things but they are there, you just have to look for them.  make a promise to yourself to stop and look around every day.

so,  with my sweet memories of 2012 in hand i say bring on the days ahead.  whatever 2012 brought you, it is now behind you, so leave it there.  you can revisit the good memories and let go of the bad ones. very often something that begins with great intention, excitement, and enthusiasm can wind into an utterly unanticipated close.  but remind yourself there is value in the journey no matter where it takes you. there are cracks in everything, but remember,that's what lets the light in. 2012 brought me amazing adventures and wonderful memories, mighty challenges, and bountiful lessons. i am thankful for all the beautiful moments and i must appreciate all the frustrating ones.

here's to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2013.

love sent, xo
