Those who know me well, know that 2012 was not my best year.
I struggled with my relationship; really struggled. Its not perfect yet. To be honest I'm not sure it ever will be, but I'm working on being okay with that.
My oldest son was diagnosed with PDD NOS. It is a form of autism. His every being has challenged me to be the very, very best person that I can be and I'm not even close to being the mother that I want to be with him
My youngest son is waiting to be evaluated for some developmental delays that could be Autism related as well. He is busy, crazy, wild and beautiful. He wakes before the crack of dawn and does not slow down until 7:00pm. He makes things easy a lot of days and some days not so much.
AND, If you know me REALLY well, you know that I like new beginnings, a fresh start, a do over.
My hope for 2013 is to come out of it happier then I entered it. To live life with GRACE, to be accepting of who I am as a person and not get caught up in self effacing thoughts. To not let an image in my head cloud reality. To not let others opinion of me, or what I think their opinions are of me, be more important than what I know to be true. To tune out the negative and embrace the positive.
PS...If you are a scrapper, this post might excite you. I'm totally back on board with Project 12 this year!
Happy Trails my friends.
