A new year… another chance to be remarkable

As I put the finishing touches on my Christmas dinner, I was struck by the fact that 2012 was almost over! It seemed just like yesterday I was anxious about the New Year and made several resolutions for 2012. I cannot believe that 2013 is upon us.
Before I closed out the year, I spent some quality time reflecting on 2012. I celebrated my accomplishments and identified the lessons I had learned from my challenges. Last year year was an amazing one and I was richly blessed with love, family, and friends.
As 2012 closed, did you take the time for reflection? What did you celebrate? I hope that you to took time to count your blessings and audaciously celebrate the close of 2012.
With a joyful heart,
Angela
