2010 you were as lame as any year could be and quite frankly, I am glad to see the back of you.
2011, you are so welcome, I embrace you, I will bask in the newness of you and I will walk into you with confidence knowing you will not throw Galerie Montmartre the curve ball we endured last year. (archived in June/July 2010 if you are unsure what I am talking about)
If I was to tell you what I have learned these past twelve months, you'd still be reading into 2012 - and who has time for that anyway?! But the number one lesson, for me, has been when push comes to shove, I am surrounded by people who can step up - Team Galmont, for example, have been unstoppable, as have my family and friends - and the number two lesson is the love of people can carry you through anything. Really, it can.
I actually feel invincible as a result of the events of the past six months, not without it's overwhelming moments or those times when I want to run miles and miles like Forrest Gump....I still just might, you never know! But to have walked through a crisis and kept going, growing our little family and business and still have my head on my shoulders and my heart on my sleeve. Well, I'm going to pat myself on the back for that one!!
So my new year's resolution? Continue to seek out people and situations that feed my soul....and quietly continue my mission of weeding out the nutbags can hang around.
Nothing less will do. Life is too short.
Happy New Year my beautiful bloggators, I wish you a fabulous new year full of fun times and wonderful people. I look forward to being back in blogland from February 2011.
