Here's to 2012:
A chance to become better.
An opportunity to fix mistakes and move forward.
A clean slate.
A new year means another chance to recommit yourself to becoming who you want to be.
And perhaps this will be the year you decide what kind of person you want to be.
We'll be given more opportunities, be placed in new situations, and be faced with harder decisions.
And we will get to prove to ourselves that we can do hard things.
This year is bound to contain happiness & heartbreak, goodbyes & reunions, inspiration & discouragement,
but we get to decide how we let it affect us.
[Life can be magnificent and overwhelming — that is the whole tragedy. Without beauty, love, or danger it would almost be easy to live.]
