Dear 2012 | A Letter

While on my morning run, I had time to reflect on all that you brought with you over these last 365 days.

And it is hard to believe we are already parting.

It feels like just yesterday that I was jumping in the frigid waters of First Dam to give you a warm welcome.

Yet, being released from my calling feels like a lifetime ago.

I realized that ... you were so good to me.

... Even if my Mittster didn't win the election, I tore some ligaments in my ankle, Gary Anderson left and I am still as single as sliced cheese. ;)

I think we reminded each other that each year, each day - our entire lives! - is what we make it.

To choose happiness over sorrow.

To choose kindness over hate.

To choose greatness over mediocrity. {Still working on this one!} ;)

While I didn't have control over everything you brought me, I knew I had complete control over what I decided to do with it.

And so as we part, I want to say thank you. 

I so enjoyed the ride. :)

Farewell, my friend. 

All my love,

Mindy Marie

P.S. I tried super-duper hard to remind everyone to call you by your chosen name, twenty-twelve {opposed to two-thousand twelve}. You are welcome. :)

My thoughts exactly... Except I didn't injure my ankle :)
