Dear 2011,
You were good to me - as good as a year can be and I thank you for that. You were littered with gems + fireworks except for when you were soft with tears. And I couldn't fault you for mixing it up like that because there is no joy without some sadness... I get that. I get that in a humbled way that makes my heart want to crack sometimes. I can't thank you enough for blessing me with the good fortune of being about to relocate and find an awesome job. My good fortune is appreciated. Thank you for being good to the rents, giving them enough patience to love us all. Even when I was too loud and too cranky. I wouldn't have made it through without them. Thank you for the health of my friends + families and all the new members that have taken spots on earth. Please, please bless the ones who didn't make it. And 2011? If we're being thankful - thanks for the relocation + rejuvenation. It has been the best distraction for me from the small fact that around the halfway mark of this year - amidst the goodness - I had to say good bye to some pretty awesome friends!  And I guess if we're being totally honest, as much as it hurts - thank you for giving me the opportunity to let them go with the dignity that the pals like that deserves. You're alright 2011.
I'm alright, too.
Happy trails. NOW LET'S DO SOME CELEBRATING. To you and yours - make 2012 what you need.

Resident Pot-Stirrer.

I’m a positive person by nature. Not much gets me down. I’m a Pollyanna type who likes to focus on what’s not broken, what we’ve begun to fix, and people who fundamentally get it.

I'm Percolating.

Focus On The Good.
To many times it occurs to me that somewhere along the lines - people just didn't know they were awesome enough to take that leap, take that job, take that chance, take that bus, be that gal, go for more, do that thing, demand the best, trust their guts, make it happen, be the man, do their best... it's crazy. Maybe they forgot. Maybe no one told them. Maybe they just never knew.
I'm thinking hard about what's calling me, what my heart says, and what I want to invite more of into my life in 2012. Man, how I love new beginnings.

Liberate your inner awesome.  AUTHENTICITY is a treasure.
