So... I am going to try and silence the see-saw for a while. Instead, I am going to look for perspective, notice how far I have actually come in the last year, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and keep my eyes and ears open for any unexpected opportunity that lines up with my goal. I'm calling you out 2012. You are going to be my year. At least I am going to pay more attention to the successes than the failures, so whatever happens, it is going to feel like my year.
P.S. If you have thoughts or if this resonates with you at all, I would love to hear what you have to say in the comments :)
