I was going to post pics from last night's totally amazing New Year's Eve Eve party, but I'm rather lazy today, and being that it's the last day of the year [and my 4th anniversary of starting this blog!], I'm more contemplative than anything else today.
2011 was a pretty full year for me. I mean, RL-wise, there was a lot of family medical issues going on and a lot of stress and anxiety, and my body is a little worse for wear, but we got through it. But there were good times too, of course, and I am grateful that I'm ending the year with both my parents still able to get around, even if their steps are slow. There were many times this year that I wasn't sure if that would happen. The walker and the wheelchair sit in the corner of their house, not necessary at the moment, and that makes me extremely happy.
In SL...well, who could call my SL anything but blessed? There were some tough times here and there, but on the whole, it's been so amazing. I cannot remember a time in my SLife when I have been happier. I've learned a lot, I've loved and been loved in return, I feel like I've really settled down into what SL should be. Are there still things I want? Of course. But that is what the new year is for, right?
My New Year's resolutions for SL are simple. Be more open to new friendships with people because not everyone is going to hurt me. Be more social and hang out with my friends because they have been by my side no matter what I've gone through this year. Continue building a life with Aldwyn and blogging our adventures.
Speaking of blogging, I'm re-starting the 365 Day Project. I know, crazy, right? But when I look over the past year, I didn't blog ENOUGH. I missed recording so many things. Whether I write a real post or not, a picture can totally do it. And I know there will be days that I will miss because I'll be out of town a bit this spring, but I will just keep going like I did the last time.
Happy New Year, everyone! Please be safe if you go out to party tonight. I need you all with me in 2012!! ♥♥♥
