I am excited about the new year. I am always genuinely enthusiastic about New Year's when the preceding year has been especially dreadful. Ok, it wasn't all that bad, just financially tight and a bit depressing on a personal and national basis. Between the Election, and mass shootings, I feel affected and drained.
So anyway, whenever I have felt this way before, and greeted the new year with open arms, the next year has been fabulous and so I am claiming a fabulous New Year.
Here's my problem though.
I can't envision a whole year ahead of me.
I can only see the next six months because my life will be changing so much halfway through the year. Because my girl is graduating and I have no more children at home, I feel like halfway though the year I will be making a brand new start. So year 2013.1 I will be working hard to make sure my girl finishes her high school program, successfully and happily. Then year 2013.2, I will work to make sure she transitions into college well, and that I transition well into empty nester status. Wooo-hooo.
Sorry, I can't say empty nester without squealing. It's not that I want them to go... and my husband certainly does not want them to go, but life is about change and growth, and I have been in this holding pattern for a while. I am ready to change and grow.
Happy New Year.
