What will 2012 bring? I haven’t the slightest clue, but I will continue to hope, plan, and dream.
I know I want to continue doing some of the new things I picked up this year, I want to expand things, and I want to readjust other things. I want to move into more of a simpler mode. I hope down the road I am able to continue to do the things that bring me the most joy and mean the most. I will continue to spend time with family. I hope to take more time to have coffee and chats with friends. I will continue to travel. I will take an active approach in my health, making the simple step of being more active. I dream to rebuild my photography business in hopes it grows into something where I can share it more with people and where I can create something special for families. I hope to reach out to others who have experienced a pregnancy loss or infant loss, building connections and healing.
I hope to be “living the backyard life“, as my husband puts it, still and having that life include little feet running around the house. I hope that we will grow our family. To go from 3 to 4 or 5. Whatever it may be. To be raising a family is my dream. I hope my path continues to introduce new people into my life in hopes that bonds can be formed and relationships built.
In the year ahead I plan to continue blogging/journaling, creating a place for others to find help & healing on their infant loss path, as well as a place to share their story through my website www.myinfantloss.com, and continue to find ways to honor Samantha. I hope to find beauty in the world around me each day, find great joy in the simple things, and grow (mentally, spiritually, and emotionally)
This past year I have taken one word with me. It helped me to get through the tough days, gave me hope, and created a sense of peace. That word was trust. 2012 brings a new year and a new word, with the help of an Illuminate class I took I decided to make a conscious choice about what word I want to carry me through the new year. I have been trying to decide between two…strength and believe. With all that I am hoping for and dreaming for, my word is going to be…believe. It encompasses so much and with my one word mantra, I will continue to grow and will be able to make it through the year with a strong foundation. What does 2012 look like for you? Whatever it may be…I hope your year is filled with relaxation, happiness, laughter, and many blessings. Happy New Year! Here’s to a great year!!
