2012 feels ripe with possibility.
More than any recent New Year, I feel like 2012 is a clean slate, a true starting over. I have no idea what this year will bring, and that's exciting.
I'll be honest: the last several weeks of 2011 were some of the worst of my life.
So when December 31st rolled around, I was more than ready to put 2011 to bed.
And that's what I did. I put the year to bed. I tucked 2011 gently under the covers, thanked it for all the lessons I learned from it, turned off the light, and quietly shut the door.
And now I'm standing in the full daylight of 2012, ready to take it on. I know a lot of people think this is the year the world will end, but I've never believed that. Rather, I've always believed that 2012 will be the year of transformation.
