Courage for 2012

I hope that 2012 gives you courage:

-the courage to fail
-the courage to let go of those who disappoint you
-the courage to remodel and restart projects
-the courage to write
-the courage to keep going
-the courage to give others a chance
-the courage to love and be vulnerable

**2011 was saturated with the highest of highs and lowest of lows (I suppose that's how these bundles of time tend to be). I ended my first novel and some long standing friendships. I felt the uplifting current of true love, of a man who makes me want to be more than I thought I could be. I met giving people who are always willing to help. I traveled to northwest Africa and places in my mind I never thought existed. I formed concrete ideas about what kind of doctor, writer, and humanitarian I hope to be someday. I accepted this transitional, uncertain place I'm often in (it may simply be a part of me).

With each year, we add colors to ourselves, and I hope all of you get the happiness and success you deserve in 2012!



  1. Happy New Year to you too! :) All the best.

  2. I totally agree with what I said.
    As far as relationships are concerned, I am on the horns of dilemma whether to end some relationships or not.

    Happy New year ahead. I will keep stalking your blog. I have also shared this on my Fb page.
