Life is a funny thing is it not? People, places, objects all constantly wander in and out of our lives bringing with them happiness, joy, love, surprise, sorrow, tears, but the one thing that remains constant is self. It suddenly struck me that the one thing that will remain with me for all of my life is me. An obvious thing I know but sometimes in the turmoil of life it's something that can easily become forgotten.
So 2012 is the year that I have decided I will take better care of myself. I will strive to live in a way that I think is meaningful, I will do the things that bring me joy and happiness. I will make time for family and friends, I will spend as much time as I can outside enjoying fresh air and all of the wonders that mother nature brings, I will buy local produce as much as I can and I will support the handmade community. I will find joy and laughter in everyday and I will not let the things that I can't change worry me. I will be kind to others even when they don't treat me in the same way.
So here's to a brand new me for 2012
