Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 27.


Goodbye joyous and peaceful Christmas that somehow felt extra good this year.
Goodbye well-deserved Winter Break, but it's back to hitting the books for my boy and hitting the highway pavement for me (and hopefully nothing else).
Goodbye packed malls, filled movie theaters, and swarmed sledding hills.
Goodbye late nights, sleeping in, and simply living life in the leisure-lane with no concept of time.
Goodbye 2011 as you came and went so fast and blessed us with so much.

Hello welcoming silence in order to listen to my inner voice and what it has to say to me.
Hello embracing new possibilities and sticking my neck out sometimes just to see what happens.
Hello out-of-town grandparents staying with us and ringing in the new year - Par-Taay!
Hello Christmas shopping-spree for my boy, sponsored by his out-of-town grandparents.
Hello 2012 and getting excited for all it has in store for us and hoping for grace, come what may.

This last week of 2011 is filled with many of us thinking about resolutions for 2012. The lesson I learned this week is all the lists of resolutions come down to just one simple concept: We all just want to be better. It's not about doing the right thing all the time. It's not about being the best. It is simply about being and doing better than from where we started, where ever that baseline may be. If we can walk away from a year gone by and say, "I made some progress", then that is all we can ask. So, make it easy on yourself and resolve to do just one thing, "Be Better. Do Better."


How do you plan on "doing better" or "being better" in 2012?
