Though the number thirteen is arguably my least favorite number, I have high hopes for this year. My best friend Micaela sent me a message first thing this morning acknowledging my disdain for the particular double digit and then went on to tell me that amazing things are in store for me this year. Another friend said this year is going to be my year. I won't argue with them. They're both wise individuals.
Initially, I was feeling a little blue because Christmas was over. December is always an exciting month because I love the Christmas season, but once all is said and done, it's almost hard to put away the decorations and take down the tree. Well, thank goodness for Micaela, because she reminded me of something important this evening - Christmas is the last thing we look forward to each year and when it's over, we have a fresh start. A brand new beginning for a brand new year. So, I'm staying positive, keeping my chin up, and looking out to the horizon for what lies ahead.
