20-12 is just moments away … and for New Zealand it’s even closer!
With another year winding down and dropping away, I guess this is always a moment to look back at the year that was, and remind ourselves of the highs and the lows and ultimately those things that seem to define us in the coming year and maybe the one or two after that. Or longer even. And sometimes looking back is the only way to go forward.
For me, personally, this year has been one hell of a roller coaster. The scariest, fastest, most amazing and most dangerous roller coaster in the park! There’s been twists and turns I never saw coming, highs that have had my heart in my throat they were so high and lows that have left me shaken. And even when I got the feeling that I was about to hit another loopty-loop, I was still surprised and as shocked as ever at being turned upside down again. Apparently, I’m another year older but still none the wiser… which to be honest, is just the way I like it.
But despite the challenges that 2011 served up for me, I’m still going to remember it with alot of fondness and alot of love. Because it was a year filled with countless laugh out loud moments, times of pure magic and days that just make you want to stand still. Yep 2011, you’ve left a mark in my life and my days, that’s for sure. You won’t be forgotten.
So, thanks for coming 2011, it really has been something to hold onto. But now we’ve got to let it go. 2012 – I’m ready for you.
Let the good times roll.
Peace & 20-12
