The same emotions apply to New Year's. The opportunity to step over the threshold of 2012, without the failures and shortcomings of 2011, is glorious!
My failure in past resolutions has been my focus to become what I am not. Thus, burying myself under more guilt and disappointment. Because really, I don't want to end my love affair with Coca Cola.
This year's resolutions is different. I promise.
In 2012, I will just be me. Wife. Mama. Daughter. Sister. Friend.
You'll find me at home, making memories.
It's going to be a challenge. I've been distracted from my own life for a long time, present... but not available. So, here's to longer kisses, bedtime stories, recipe swapping, coffee drinking, game playing, long walks, family dinners, laughter, mess making......and all things found at home.
I can't afford to miss this.
