Before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, let's stop and reflect on the year that has gone by...remember both our triumphs and missteps, our promises made and broken...the times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt. Because that's what the new year is all about: getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about "what if?" and start embracing what would be. So when the ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just on New Year's Eve, but all year long. Let's embrace the love we have, the great people we have in our lives, the great times we have, the great memories we will make. Let's not let the bad things triumph the good in our lives.
Here's to wishing you a glorious bright new year in 2012.
