I really need this year to be better than last and things are looking okay here at the start. My friends were able to come over on New Years Eve. I haven't been able to have friends over in a long time so it was really nice. By a long time I mean years so it was actually great. So I thought, "Let this be the prelude to how this year will be - filled with friends."
I hope it continues that way, with friends as the main event, but there's still so many things that I am struggling with. I'm still saddled with a second job, my thyroid is a mess, I still need a bigger horse trailer, my financial situation is okay at the moment but still very fragile and subject to break again at a moments notice, and there's still much to be done in this cluttered mess of a house.
But maybe what I should have done was taken a few moments on December 31st to look back and relish the things that were accomplished in 2012 before plowing ahead into 2013. Many goals were set and reached. Big goals. There were plenty of setbacks and disappointments along the way but those reached goals were phenomenal. I need to take this moment to appreciate that and to gain strength to make even bigger and better goals for 2013. Goals that I will reach one step, one dollar, one riding lesson, and one clean room at a time. Cheers to the New Year!
