"Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end."

I love new beginnings. I know it's a little cliche, but I really love the feeling of starting anew, making a list of new things I want to do/try, and making a note of the things I want to achieve in the new year. This year, I am not going to set any crazy goals... I feel like sometimes setting certain goals can set you up for failure. All I want is to continue to incorporate positive things (actions, people, etc) into my life and be the best version of myself that I can be. 

I also think it's important to look back over the past year and remember all the great things about it, however big or small. For me those things were: becoming an auntie, getting my Master's degree, a new job that fulfills me more than I could have imagined, and being a part of my friend Amanda's wedding :) Of course, we all have tough times and "bumps" in the road, but it's important to remember the good things!

And I will share with you a few things I want from 2012......

1. Travel within (and if I'm lucky-outside) the U.S.
2. Read more books
3. Incorporate exercise into my schedule
4. Take my vitamins!
5. Give myself time in the mornings before work
6.  Buy a house or condo!
7. Indulge in my crafty side
8. Spend more time outdoors
9. Spend time with good friends, keep in touch
10. Turn the negative into positive!

What are your ideas & goals for 2012?
