The New Year

Posted on December 28th, 2011

So this is the new year
And I don’t feel any different
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance

The New Year, Death Cab For Cutie

The end of 2011 is but a few days away. It’s quite alarming how quickly the year has gone by; indeed, if it weren’t for the cold and a bit of snow here and there, I wouldn’t have guessed that it was already December.

When I look back on the year, I can be relieved in knowing that it was a good one. Things in all areas of my life just went well. The biggest regret that I might have is spending as much as I did on clothing, but dang are my clothes better than before! I can somewhat counter this by asserting that this was also the most generous year that I’ve had; I’ve given much to my family, friends, church, and other worthwhile causes and I’m really happy about that.

As the year winds down, I am making sure that 2012 will start on the best footing possible. All of my credit cards will have $0 balances. I am ending off this year in likely the best physical shape compared to any other December before. I am (definitely) older and (hopefully) wiser. When I survey my life, I can smile and be content. Sure, there are some things missing and perhaps they will come in 2012, but 2011 was a good year from which to build.

To all of you, I hope that your 2011 was fulfilling and rewarding, and that your best years will come both in 2012 and beyond. Happy new year!
