Although that day is supposed to be today, I don't think the world is going to end. Or ever in my lifetime. But what I do know for certain is that this year is coming to an end. 2012 has been the most rollercoaster ride of a year yet. A lot of ups and a lot of downs. A lot of happiness and a lot of fear.
This year I read Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and countless other books. I created art, and I liked what I made. I experienced new music, made new friends, went on amazing adventures, explored new corners of my mind, and tasted freedom. I let myself get wrapped up in life and experienced every moment that I possibly could. I failed, I tried again and I succeeded. I spoke my mind, I bit my tongue, I was proud of myself, and I let myself be reminded by the pure joy of the little things; nacho dip, a sunrise, the way the dogs follow me around the house all day long, clean water, and a cloudless sky. Those are the big things when you let them be - like mountains and tall trees and s`mores at the bonfire.
another year, another story, another adventure. And so, for 2013, I vow to let every single moment be a big, important, extraordinary moment and let myself, by next December, be able to tell another great chapter in the story we all call life.
